Halloween in Los Angeles is serious business and there’s some kind of spooktacular event for you, no matter what kind of inappropriate costume you are planning to wear.

There’s the West Hollywood Costume Carnaval, for the classic Los Angeles Halloween experience; ghost tours on Catalina Island; Thrill the World, as you join hundreds trying to break the record of number of people dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” on October 23; a Dia de Los Muertos celebration on October 30 at the Hollywood Forever cemetery; and of course, October’s scare mazes at Universal Studios and Knott’s Berry Farm.
