March 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Halloween has its origins in the mythologies of the Celtic nations and pagan religions. It is said that it observes the time of year when the occupants of the underworld come visit the earth’s current residents. The holiday may have started in Ireland, but it was perfected in West Hollywood. The country’s most famous gay neighborhood knows how to throw a party and the best party they throw is the Hollywood Halloween Carnaval. The carnival has been going on for years and features some of the most imaginative and risqué costumes you will ever see.
The debauchery takes place every year on Santa Monica Boulevard in WeHo. The adventure begins at 6:00 and goes all the way until 10:30. When the Hollywood Halloween Carnival ends, the bars and restaurants will keep celebrating into the wee hours of the morning. The event is best appreciated by adults and features food, fun, and music.
Hollywood Halloween Carnival – The Costumes
Everyone goes to the WeHo Carnival, even celebrities. You may see a woman dressed as Hugh Hefner accompanied by a male Kendra or a drunken Krusty Clown accompanied by two scantily clad women. Los Angeles is known as a city of sexual freedom and you may see a fair share of R-rated attendees.
You will find several music stages lining Santa Monica Boulevard. You can dance to the Monster Mash or listen to the latest in electronic music. Many of the bars that line this famous street also feature bands and dance parties.
Food and Drink
You will find several food carts along the way offering cuisine from around the world. If you would rather sit down and watch the characters walk by, you can enjoy a fresh organic salad at Tender Greens or a Baja bowl at Fiesta Cantina. Enjoy some legal weed followed by a big order of fries at Five Guys or have a couple of strong drinks at Troubadour. If dancing is your thing, you should head over to Flaming Saddles or Revolver Video Bar.
