2010 Halloween Events

Halloween is a little over two weeks away and while I’m sure most of you have started to plan what costumes to wear and personas to transform into, none of that serves any good if you wind up with nothing to do. We have put together some of the upcoming Halloween events going on around town, to help you decide where to celebrate this year’s Halloween festivities.

For starters a safe bet for Halloween fun would be any one of the major theme parks around town. Knotts, Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Six Flags have all began to if not already transform their park into Halloween hotspots. All of the parks except Disneyland will be offering up a frightening mix of mazes and haunted rides for visitors to experience, while Disneyland will be offering a more family friendly experience. No matter what your preference all of these theme parks are sure to offer up something different for everyone and best of all; these parks will be in the holiday spirit now until the end of the month.

For those of you not looking to spend upwards of $50 for an admission ticket, there are a variety of other options out there.

Entering its 23rd year The West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnival, will feature more than half a million people in costume flooding the streets of West Hollywood, taking part in the festivities. While there will be a number of events going on around the area the actual carnival will take place on the 31st and will go on from 6PM – Midnight.

As mentioned in the last entry, The Queen Mary will transform itself into one of the most exhilarating and terrifying attractions in town. The haunted vessel will feature five unique mazes, haunted rooms, a live DJ and dance party, as well as free food and drink.
