October 31 is celebrated as Halloween, a holiday for adults as well as children. If you are looking for scary places to visit away from the Raleigh, NC area, here is one option for you:
West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval, West Hollywood, CA
Nearly half a million Halloween revelers will descend on Santa Monica Boulevard on October 31, 2010, for the 23rd annual West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval, once again comprising the largest Halloween celebration in the world.
Arriving in time for Halloween, the Rocky Horror Picture Show 35th Anniversary is coming to the Carnaval for a very special one-off engagement. One of the stages of the event will be devoted to performances honoring this legendary cult film throughout the night.
Another main stage, Club 25, will feature house band Tranzkontinental, the Wandering Marionettes, aerialists The Birds and a rock & roll strip show. In addition to the two main stages, four smaller stages will feature DJs, graffiti artists, voguers and go-go dancers.
A parade will kick off the evening just before 7 p.m. starting at La Cienega & Santa Monica Boulevard. The parade will include members of the Rocky Horror Picture Show cast, stage performers and city officials being transported in pedi‐floats down Santa Monica Blvd.
The event will close out with a Guinness Book record-breaking performance of Time Warp synchronized across all six stages of the event.
