While fall foliage is sparse in L.A., the there's no shortage of Halloween spirit.
Grand Ave Arts: All Access
While the rest of the country scoffs at the idea of Grand Avenue becoming LA's Champs-Élysées, we're too busy making the most of the Downtown street's cultural treasures. For one afternoon, 11 institutions will celebrate their Bunker Hill home with free performances, exhibitions and tours. Most of the action takes place on Grand Avenue between Temple and Sixth Streets. Highlights include the chance to conduct a small chamber orchestra at the Colburn School; two free recitals from up-and-coming LA Opera resident musicians; a Day of the Dead celebration at Grand Park and free admission to MOCA.
Stan Lee's Comikaze
There's no shortage of pop culture conventions, but how many have Marvel icon Stan Lee's name attached to them? Lee hosts this three-day expo with comic book panels, anime screenings and celebrity appearances. Make sure to come in costume for the geek couture fashion show and cosplay contest.
West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval
This is the largest Halloween street party in the world, and there's really no better place to be on October 31st. Sure, the crowd is huge (like, a half million people huge) and a bit belligerent, but the amazing display of costumes and general merry-making spirit deem it at least a worthy stop, if not your main destination for the evening. There will be dancing, drinking, and many mid-parade costume contests. Even if you don't plan on entering one, it's best to still come dressed to the nines—no one likes a party pooper in jeans and a t-shirt. Tip: Try to be around for the crowning of the honorary "Queen of the Carnival," and expect lots of surprises; MTV wowed the crowd a couple of years back with a pop-up Robyn concert. See photos from the 2015 West Hollywood Costume Carnaval.
