There's a slight fall chill in the air, and haunting decor is popping up in and around restaurants and bars seemingly overnight.
There's no mistaking it - it's Halloween season in Santa Monica, and Halloween party events are at their wicked best.
From Halloweekend pub crawls to a haunted hotel, Santa Monica Halloween party events offer something for everyone age 21 and up.
With Halloween festivities rapidly approaching, it's time to start planning your costume - and where you'll be wearing it!
Goons, goblins, sexy teachers, maybe even some Pokemon will be out and about scouring the streets of Santa Monica in search of the best Halloween events.
