What should I wear? What about the weather?
Wear whatever you want. People show up in costumes that range from scandalous to spooky, but dressing up is not required. We would advise wearing comfortable shoes (or at least bringing some along), as you'll probably spend a lot of time on your feet. The current forecast is clear with a high of 78 and a low of 58, which is about average for Halloween in LA.
If you do dress up, you can hashtag your photos #WeHoHalloween -- and the city may feature your look on its social media feeds. Still not sure what to wear? Check out Visit West Hollywood's 2018 Carnaval gallery for some spookspiriation.
What to bring/What NOT to bring
For security purposes, backpacks, camera bags, and totes are NOT allowed. You can, however, carry a clear plastic bag. We'd suggest trying to pack light and bringing only your essentials: phone, keys, ID, cash, debit or credit card, TAP card, etc. Other banned items include weapons, fireworks, and drones. You can't bring your own booze, nor can you drink it on the streets, and while West Hollywood may have LA’s first cannabis cafe, remember you’re not allowed to smoke it in public.
Can I bring my kids or pets?
The City of West Hollywood and the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station strongly discourage bringing children or pets. Carnaval is crowded, noisy, a little rowdy, and often involves a lot of very revealing costumes. Your dog probably won't like it, and it's probably not appropriate for the little ones.
