Halloween, Southern California-style

Southern California celebrates Halloween in a variety of ways, as can be seen in these photos from West Hollywood and Newport Beach. In the annual West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval, large crowds of costumed people converged on a stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard for a tribute to the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” as well as an attempt to set a world-record “The Time Warp” dance. In Newport Beach, surfers donned their (waterproof) costumes to take to the waves during Blackie’s Classics Longboard Assn. Halloween Surf Costume contest at the pier.
