Get ready for another delicious food fest, Los Angeles. The guys behind KTOWN Night Market are bringing a two-day street food festival to Koreatown for Halloween.

The inaugural event, dubbed the Halloween Food Fest, will take place on Saturday, October 25 from 2 p.m. to midnight and on Sunday, October 26 from noon to 9 p.m. The event heads will be closing off seven blocks of 6th Street between Normandie and Vermont avenues. They'll be playing host to a bevy of food vendors like Ramen Burger, Shinsengumi, Eight Korean BBQ, Swirl Potato and Mama Musubi. Just like the first KTOWN Night Market that was held in Los Angeles back in April, Seoul Sausage—the crew who won Season 3 of Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race—will be curating the list of food purveyors that will be whipping up dishes at the festival. Although there will be a lot of Korean food there, the fest folks say that won't be the only kind of cuisine.

There will also be carnival games and pop-up shops, and costumes are encouraged. Maybe some sort of costume that comes with stretchy pants might work best.

The full lineup hasn't been announced yet, but check back on the KTOWN Night Market website in the coming weeks for more info. Presale tickets can be bought online for $3 here, or for $5 at the door for each day.
