West Hollywood’s Halloween Costume Carnaval – October 31, 2010

West Hollywood’s 23rd Annual Halloween Costume Carnaval takes place on Halloween night, Sunday October 31.  At this free celebration those who’ve dressed up are the focus of this insanely fun street fair.  The event will feature live music, DJs, illusionists, a costume contest and even celebrity guests.  The festivities have gotten so popular that for several years now over half a million people attend.
