West Hollywood to host the world's largest Halloween Street Festival!
Still don’t have any plans for Halloween? Are you really content to stay in and pass out candy all night? October 31st falls on a Friday this year, and you should take advantage of it! So leave some candy on the front porch, and let the trick-or-treaters fend for themselves while you head to West Hollywood for Halloween Carnaval 2014!
A World Class Halloween Celebration!
Halloween Carnaval (Yes, Carnaval not Carnival) is the largest Halloween street festival in the world. This year, over half a million guests are expected to attend the event, temporarily boosting West Hollywood’s population enough that it will temporarily become the 7th largest city in California! . Halloween Carnaval is actually the second largest annual event in the Los Angeles area, with only the Tournament of Roses Parade being more popular.
Since 1987 the Carnaval has expanded to include entertainment, food and even a “Queen of the Carnaval” crowning. Last year over 50 performers on 6 stages helped create a truly memorable experience, and though the details haven’t been released as of posting this article, you can expect something similar from the 2014 edition.
Each year usually involves a specific theme. The 2013 theme was “ One Noir Night in West Hollywood” which tied the festival into the film noir aesthetic. Be sure to pay attention to West Hollywood’s website so you can plan your costume accordingly for this year’s theme!
