Hundreds of thousands will descend upon West Hollywood on Sunday night, clad like Lady Gaga, zombies or a plethora of other costumes (read LAist's 2010 trendy predictions) for the annual West Hollywood Halloween Carnival. But such a massive event means a multitude of street closures and parking issues.

Of note is that the city relaxes its strict parking permit enforcement citywide (in some areas, not displaying a permit means more than a ticket, it means a tow) between 5 p.m. on Halloween to 6 a.m. Monday morning. Parking meters, however, will be enforced and the city warns that because it shares a sometimes tricky border with Los Angeles, make sure you read all parking signs (clue: most all L.A. street signs say "City of Los Angeles" at the bottom in small letters).

The event officially goes from 6 to 11 p.m. Below are the street closures and public parking locations ($15 to $20):
