WeHo Halloween Carnaval takes place on the lively Santa Monica Boulevard between N Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard on Monday October 31. Here’s how to get to there.
We’re going to be honest—with so many attending WeHo Halloween Carnaval, the traffic in the area is a bit of a disaster. While there are public parking options in the city (see below), we highly – highly—recommend taking a ride share service like Uber or Lyft.
Set your final destination as one of the passenger loading zones (designated from 6:00 p.m – 2:00 a.m) on Santa Monica Boulevard just west of Orlando Avenue, or Melrose Avenue just east of Huntley Drive. Public transportation options include the city's The PickUp and Cityline, both which will have modified routes for Halloween.
Don’t expect to get dropped off right at the Carnaval—there are road closures surrounding the boulevard beginning in the wee hours the night before.
Street closures beginning at 12:01 a.m on October 31:
- San Vicente Blvd. between Melrose Ave. and Cynthia St..
- Santa Monica Blvd. between Doheny Dr. and La Cienega Blvd.
