WEST HOLLYWOOD—West Hollywood’s Recreation Services Division will host its annual free Youth Halloween Carnival on Saturday, October 23, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the Vista Lawn at Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard. In accordance with COVID-19 safety protocols, all activities will take place outdoors with appropriate physical distancing.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health recommends that everyone wear a face mask and to “incorporate a face mask that covers your nose and mouth snugly into your costume. A costume mask is NOT a substitute for a face mask that protects against COVID-19.”

According to a press release from the city of West Hollywood, the Youth Halloween Carnival will include games, a pumpkin patch, a trackless train, costume showcases, raffles, and entertainment by community groups. Children are welcome to show-off their costumes and participate in raffles. Pets are also invited to display their “Howl-O-Ween” best (but must follow Plummer Park rules to always remain on a leash).

The Youth Halloween Carnival will adhere to a series of COVID-19 health and safety measures in compliance with Health Officer Orders and Protocols established by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. The event will: take place outdoor-only with reduced capacity (approximately 50 percent of maximum occupancy); employ mask-wearing and physical distancing; utilize procedures to reduce crowding; use advanced registration and communications to convey COVID-19 safety plans; and post visible signage that attendees must not enter the premises if sick or symptomatic.
