WHAT'S GOING ON: Top 5 things to do for Halloween in the South Bay

Not sure what kind of mischief to get into this Halloween weekend? Well we've got you covered! Here is a list of our top 5 things to do for Halloween in the South Bay this year. From family friendly carnivals, to spooky haunted dance parties, we covered them all!

1. Riviera Village: Halloween Trick or Treat

On Saturday, from 4-6 pm, Catalina Ave will be closed to traffic so that ghouls and goblins can roam the streets, collecting candy from the local shops. Thousands of kids come each year to enjoy the trick-or-treating, so get there early to get your treats! The village is packed with restaurants as well, so make reservations and grab some dinner before the candy collecting begins.

2. Hotel Portofino: South Bay Scream

Hotel Portofino in Redondo Beach gets turned into a huge Halloween party, by set designers, called 'South Bay Scream'.  This is an adults-only, high quality, Vegas-style party.

3. Visit Our Favorite Trick or Treating Spots

Our favorite spot for taking the kiddies on Halloween is between 5th & 10th street in Manhattan Beach (West of Ardmore and East of Highland). They are all walk streets and the homeowners make it feel like a huge Halloween party. Some of the homes are even turned into haunted houses for the night. Tip from Diana: Park in the Hill Section, it's a little bit of a walk, but parking is easier there. 

A less crazy alternative is to start trick-or-treating on 20th & Power Street, in the sand section of Hermosa Beach. From there, work your way north and turn left on 24th Street towards the beach. Explore all the streets around there for some great candy and Halloween fun. 


4. Torrance: Halloween Carnival

A safe, family friendly alternative to trick-or-treating is the Halloween Carnival at Wilson Park. The carnival features games, crafts, a photo area, spooky music from a live DJ, and a costume parade at 6:30 p.m. There will also be food trucks on site, so you wont go hungry.

5. Shade Hotel: Halloween Circus

The Shade Hotel, in Manhattan Beach, is hosting another of the area’s best Halloween bashes starting at 7 pm. It is a circus-inspired Halloween party featuring specially crafted cocktails, a magician, tarot card reader, Dj and a cotton candy machine. Costumes are encouraged for the occasion and the party is open to the public with no cover fee.
