Many people celebrate Halloween by dressing up in spooky, gory, cute, or funny costumes, going door to door collecting candy, or even attending a costume party. Since this is one of my favorite holidays, I think it’s never too early to start getting in the Halloween spirit. Go and check out some of these events! Here are a few events in Los Angeles to check out before Halloween and even on Halloween night:
- Amusement Parks (Universal Studios, Six Flags, and Knott’s Berry Farm): For the month of October, most amusement parks usually known for their roller coasters and touristy attractions, turn into a spook fest. If you get a thrill from being scared by people with chainsaws and people popping out at you, then these destinations are for you. You can walk through themed mazes, and although you go into them anticipating someone who will pop out at you, they always find a way to do it when you least expect it. From previous experiences, make sure you avoid running from these creepy people because they will with no hesitation, come running after you.
- West Hollywood Halloween Night Costume Carnaval: For those of you looking for a less frightening night, one filled with music, performances, and tons of costumes, the carnival in WeHo is your Halloween destination. This event is one of the biggest Halloween events in Los Angeles. This street party will have you dancing all night, admiring people’s extravagant and unique costumes, and watching live entertainment. And the best part, is that it’s free of charge.

- Los Angeles Haunted Hayride: This is another haunted, and spooky event perfect for those that enjoy getting startled. You get to walk through “insane asylums” and mirror mazes, and see side shows. Visit the website: http://losangeleshauntedhayride.com/
- Screamfest: If you want to check out new horror films, then Screamfest awaits your visit. This event is commonly known as the “Sundance of Horror.” This year, it is being held at the TLC Chinese Theater in Hollywood, so grab a group of friends and check out the newest horror film screenings.
