The annual Halloween Carnaval will take over the streets of West Hollywood this Saturday. That means lots of rowdy behavior and fun costumes, but also street closures. The Halloween Carnaval kicks off Saturday night at 6 p.m. until 11 p.m., and as many as 500,000 people are expected to join in the festivities. This year, the annual event will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, declaring Tim Curry WeHo's honorary mayor, according to a release. You can find Curry at 8:45 p.m. at the San Vicente Stage at Santa Monica and San Vicente Boulevards. Other performers include DJs, bands, dancers, painters and artists. And if the crowds are too much for you to handle, you can watch a live stream of the Carnaval online.
