Fall is in full swing and Halloween is this week. Luckily, Los Angeles is just the place for Halloween themed events and what better way to enjoy the day with a list of delicious cocktail options for the adult trick-or-treaters and spooky events to choose from.
West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval
Brave the streets of West Hollywood for a night of music, dancing and people-watching, all for free. The annual parade — which is held on Oct. 31 and stretches down Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard — brings out a wide range of personalities and characters. Though the event may be open to all ages, the city suggests leaving children and pets at home.
Casamigos Annual Halloween Party
Casamigos Tequila, founded by George Clooney and Rande Gerber, hosts Hollywood’s most exclusive Halloween bash. The details of the event are only revealed to those lucky enough to be invited. Past attendees include Harry Styles, Paris Hilton, JB Smooves, Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan and Ryan Seacrest. Last year, Clooney, Gerber and Gerber’s wife Cindy Crawford flew to Las Vegas to celebrate a second night with a party at Catch at Aria resort.
Watch Halloween classics during a night on the Fairbanks Lawn of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Enjoy music during the sunset before the movie and again afterwards. Bring your own blankets, low-back chairs and pillows for comfort. Cinespia allows outside food and beverages. Tickets range from $18 to $20.

From now until Nov. 3, scare seekers can find their way through the fright-ridden mazes at Universal Studios’ annual Halloween Horror Nights.

Other mazes take inspiration from the latest seasons of Stranger Things, Jordan Peele’s Us and House of 1000 Corpses.
Returning attractions include a Walking Dead-inspired maze, scare zones and performances by the Jabbawockeez.
