Sure, it rained a little bit throughout parts of the Southland last night. But do you think that's really gonna stop over a half-million people from flocking to West Hollywood in the world's largest Halloween street party?

In the annual tradition of making Westside traffic a living nightmare (appropriate for the holiday), revelers came dressed in their freakiest, ghouliest, and sexiest costumes and paraded up and down Santa Monica Boulevard. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills cast member Lisa Vanderpump was named Queen of the Carnival.

"It's just such a vibrant city West Hollywood, and I'm so proud of it tonight because everyone really makes an effort and it is so progressive," she told NBC 4.

The #trendiest costume theme this year? Ebola, of course.
