Fun Halloween Activities In The City
Posted by Jennifer Alcaraz on Oct 28, 2012 - 2:20:57 PM

WEST HOLLYWOOD—On October 19, a list of What to Do in Halloween was released for people who look for fun or frightening places to go to. It is not only an opportunity to wear ridiculous, out-of-the ordinary costumes, but also an occasion to have fun in the city. One of the many options is a month-long screening of horror films by Cinefamily. There will be a contest for horror film aficionados who think they can sit through and watch as many films as possible; there are prizes for first, second and third winners.  Cinefamily will show the films at night starting at 10 p.m. Tickets are a total cost of $12 per film showing.



Another famed Halloween bash is the 13th annual Día de los Muertos taking place in Hollywood Forever on October 27 from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. It is considered the biggest celebration of its sort in the entire state of California. The theme of this year is the pre-Aztec roots, which means the exploration of Mayan gods, the calendar, as well as the rituals they performed. The Día de los Muertos is not a one-day celebration. On Friday, October 26, the ceremonial altar set-ups will take place. This is a ceremony which awards the best three altars with prizes from $3,000.00 (first place) to $1,000.00 (third place). Children under the age of eight as well as senior citizens over the age of 65 have free admission before 4 p.m. The rest of the visitors can expect to pay a $10 admission fee. In addition to the altar competition there will be a Best Dressed Calaca (skeleton) contest and a children’s art project by LACMA.


Another option to the Día de los Muertos celebration is LACMA’s 9th annual Muse Costume Ball. This Halloween party was started by Stanley Kubrick.  It is highly suggested to “dress to impress” in order to be entered to the annual costume competition. There is an admission fee of $75 for Muse members and $100 for the general public; both include two drinks and parking.  The already popular Halloween Horror Nights in Universal Studios, Hollywood is back. The theme park offers diverse terrifying ride adventures, from the Maze, Terror Tramp, Show & Rides and Scare Zones. The already popular slogan, “Once you go in, there’s no way out” promises to frighten with its new addition of rides such as: Mazes, Terror-Tram: Invaded by the Walking Dead, Bill & Ted’s Show, more Scare Zones and Transformers: The Ride.


Prices for tickets vary depending on choice of general admission, VIP Experience, or Front of the Line. Horror Nights will last until October 31.
