If you're a native of L.A. it's a must to spend Halloween on the streets of WeHo at least once in your life. Sure, it might not be for the faint of heart so attend at your own risk.
I've lived in the vicinity of L.A. for over 46 years and last year I finally experienced the best Halloween ever. I've been invited to plenty of Halloween parties in my long-ish life which always entailed clubs or indoor house parties. Put me outdoors in the middle of a music festival and I am happy.
So, did the West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval live up to its hype? Heck yes. You can't beat a free event where you walk up and down Santa Monica Blvd. (between Doheny and La Cienega) showing off your costume surrounded by thousands of other Halloween revelers outdoing each other in their outrageous and extraordinary costumes. When you think you've seen it all you walk a few more yards and know you have yet to see it all! (I was Carol from The Walking Dead Season 6 pretending to be one of the Wolves. My boyfriend was hip hop dude with the afro.)
I probably won't make it to another one until Halloween falls on a Saturday again, because you know, adulting. Until then, I have these pictures to remind me of my best Halloween ever.
Happy Halloween! Stay safe!
