Celebrate Halloween
Various Locations
Halloween is finally here, and there are so many ways to celebrate the day. In addition to going big at one of the major theme parks like Universal Studios’ truly terrifying Halloween Horror Night, or Six Flags Magic Mountain’s seriously twisted Fright Fest, you can also throw on a costume and join a “Crawloween” bar crawl that hits up several themed bars with drink specials downtown (don’t miss the Stranger Things drink at Library Bar). There’s always the massive block party that is West Hollywood’s Halloween Carnaval, or you can catch an interactive show about a woman haunted by a mysterious event in her past who needs your help. In Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin, you and 12 others will enter a real warehouse at a secret mid-city location, and things just get super creepy from there.
