It’s that time of year when the sun sets earlier, the slight temperature change becomes apparent, and October’s signature holiday lurks around the corner. Although, the leaves will not be changing colors and the smell of fall will not be in the air, grab your little pumpkins and pumpkin-spiced lattes and head on over to Hollywood’s most anticipated fall festival.
Hollyweird is here again and the party committee has plenty of tricks up their sleeves as they make this SPOOK-tacular better than ever.
On Saturday, October 29th, Hollywood’s 7th Annual Downtown Halloween Celebration promises to delight those of all ages. Both sides of Hollywood Blvd. between 19th and 20th streets will be closed for a super-sized block party in two segments. “Witch” will you attend?
Early in the night from 6-9 pm, the little ones can enjoy “Treat Street.” The interactive trick-or-treat area is free and offers plenty of candy stations, a bounce house, plenty of “selfie” spaces, a costume contest, kid-friendly entertainment, and so much more.
But later that evening after the little ghosts and goblins are tucked away in their beds, the real party starts. The “Hollyweird” Block Party will start at 9:00 pm and run through 2:00 am for the 21 and over-crowd. There is no cover charge, and the local business community will offer food and beverages for sale. Live music and entertainment will fill multiple stages and guests are encouraged to “dress to impress.” Adult costume contests with categories such as best group, sexiest, scariest, and best overall can win cash and prizes.
“We are looking forward to partnering again with The New Hibernians of Hollywood to host the wildly popular Hollyweird event in downtown Hollywood. The event offers a safe Halloween option for kids of all ages and a fun way for both kids and adults to celebrate and show off their amazing costumes for a chance to win cash prizes,” exclaimed Jorge Camejo, Executive Director, Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency.
Hollywood’s Halloween celebration is on October 29th from 6:00pm-2:00am. For more information, visit
