Los Angeles: the city of glitz and glam, of celebrities and luxury… but how do they celebrate Halloween? With the most thematic and exciting events, of course!
You’re bound to get the most quality during your Halloween festivities here in the land of Hollywood when concerning acting and production – and probably will be star studded, if you get lucky enough! From festivals and superstar DJs to haunted hayrides and horror tours, LA is truly the destination for the spooky holiday season. Check out these 10 festive activities you and your friends can dive into!
Los Angeles Haunted Hayride
Perhaps the most popular and well-crafted Halloween activity in LA, the Haunted Hayride – with the theme of clowns this year – will not disappoint! You never know what’s lurking in the shadows, waiting to prey on unsuspecting guests. With a hayride, a maze and plenty other spontaneous events such as music and dancing, there’s a night’s full of terror.
Also, enjoy a snack from their full-on vegan menu with “saw-sages” and “candy man apples” – pure LA style! Open weekends and some additional days during the week – information here.
Knott’s Scary Farm
Knott’s Berry Farm, an amusement park open year-round, gets in the Halloween spirit with all sorts of rides and spooky adventures for the whole family. Among the roller coasters, find yourself in a haunted maze or clown-themed ride that will be sure to make you jump.
Oh, and the most exciting part is the most famous scream queen, Elvira, performs her comedy show for the last time – definitely not an attraction to miss! Open most days, details here.
Disobey: Anton LaVey Exhibition
Our favorite LA gallery, Lethal Amounts (which appears in this list twice), never ceases to disappoint! On Halloween, the gallery will have the opening party for their Anton LaVey exhibition to celebrate the founder of the Church of Satan’s 20th deathday anniversary. Some of the speaking guests for the event will be the filmmaker Kenneth Anger, Howie Pyro of D-Generation, and artist Steven Leyba.
DJing the event is Twiggy Ramirez of Marilyn Manson fame and Matt Skiba of the punk band, Alkaline Trio. If the star-studded cast was not enough for you, never before seen photos, art and memoribilia of LaVey will be shown! It really doesn’t get more wicked than this! Details here.
