The largest Halloween street party in the world happens in West Hollywood on Friday, October 31, 2014. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets of Santa Monica Boulevard to enjoy the craziest, most eccentric costume creations ever. Admission is free. The event starts at 6 p.m. and runs until 11 p.m.
The West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval is an all ages event, and no alcohol will be served. However, many of the bars and lounges along Santa Monica Blvd. will be selling alcohol and hosting Halloween parties. View a list of parties along the Carnaval route on our Halloween Events page.
