Halloween in Los Angeles is always an exciting time. There’s trick or treating, parties, spooky scare zones at theme parks around Southern California and much more. Although Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year, there are plenty of scary activities to get involved in!

See John Carpenter Perform
The Hollywood Palladium
