Los Angeles Family Fun Halloween Activities

We’ve watched as grown-ups over the years have stolen Halloween from the young trick or treaters.  Per Glitterati Tours of Hollywood previous and upcoming posts, most events are centered around the older set that enjoys a great party along with their scares.

Here’s a handful of kid-friendly Halloween activities:

Atwater Village Trick or Treating on The Boolevard

One of Glitterati Tours guides favorite things to do each year, is volunteer as crossing guards for the local Atwater Village Trick or Treat on The Boolevard event.  This is a wonderful and safe alternative for parents looking to avoid going door to door on Halloween night with their children.  On Friday, October 27th, the merchants along Glendale Blvd pass out candy, toys and treats to 1000’s of children decked out as their favorite little monster, super hero, princess or pirate.  This takes place between 430pm-6PM.  (Atwater Village is just east of Hollywood and south of Glendale).  Get there early for parking, and enjoy one of dozens of cafes, coffee shops and restaurants to dine or grab a cold one.
