Sure there is Knotts Scary Farms and Disney and Universal Studios.Â But did you know that the Queen Mary in Long Beach gets transformed with spooky mazes and dance parties for Halloween? Â You can get in on the fun starting October 27th continuing through Halloween. www.queenmaryshipwreck.com
If you haven’t gotten your pumpkin, the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market on the pier is having a pumpkin patch for the last minute holiday planners. On October 28 from 8am til 1:30pm.
For your costume needs, I can attest my the magnitude of Ursulas Costumes on Wilshire Blvd in Santa Monica. Not only do they have tons of costumes and accessories at all prices, but you get the feeling some old time Hollywood legends could come in the place. Go in the back and check out their collection of old costumes from movies, etc. You can rent them, and they are amazing!
There is also Hollywood Toys and costumes and Ozzie Dots, both places yours truly has gotten my costume on.Â Helpful people and tons of things to pick from,Â you can really let your mind go and find the perfect outfit.
And if there is one thing L.A. can be proud of, it’s the unusual things it can claim to be the biggest and best at (why, not sure, but that’s another discussion.) One this L.A. reigns supreme at is playing host to the largest Halloween event in North America.Â It’s downtown at the L.A. Sports arena. Tickets must be purchased but if you want a ton of people and dancing, this could be your thing.
I think I’m gonna throw on some angel wings and head to the Palisades, myself.
Happy Halloween L.A.! Party smartâ€¦
