Time Out says

Shaqtoberfest is bringing a Shaq-hosted Halloween event to Long Beach this fall.

He’s a Lakers legend, an NBA commentator, a rapper, a DJ and a mid-’90s movie genie, and now you can add haunted house MC to that list: Shaquille O’Neal will be hosting a Halloween event in Long Beach this fall.

Shaqtoberfest will take over the grounds outside of the Queen Mary from late September through Halloween with a mix of family-friendly attractions and after-dark haunts, all narrated by Shaq.

From ABG Entertainment and Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group, the same producers as the L.A. Haunted Hayride, the experience will include a mix of trick-or-treating, games, food and drink, live entertainment and haunted trails. By day, the experience will lean more kid-friendly with a focus on trick-or-treating. By night, the lights and music turn up and the attention switches to the half-dozen haunted areas. (Perhaps one of them will be Shaq shooting free throws? We kid, of course.)

There are no exact dates or pricing info quite yet, but look out for more details to be released later this summer.
