    West Hollywood City Manager David Wilson: ‘Halloween was a Success’

    West Hollywood Manager, David Wilson, gave his manager’s report during a Regular City Council Meeting on Monday, November 6, 2023. On the topic of this year’s WeHo Halloween Carnaval, Wilson called the event a “success by all measures.” He added that the city looked forward to having the event next year.

    His comments on Halloween are as follows:

    “Halloween was a success by all measures. The streets were busy throughout the night, the businesses were filled, and there was countless 1000s of visitors who had a great time. We had over 40,000 views to the city’s Halloween web page, and more than 71 million impressions on social media. All the major media outlets in the Los Angeles region covered our event including KNBC, KABC, KTLA, Good Day LA, Fox 11, LA Times, La Magazine, KCRW, and KNX.

    The city worked in partnership with the LA County Sheriff’s Department, the Los Angeles County Fire Department, Block by Block and emergency preparedness contractors who provided a safe environment. There were no significant incidents that occurred from a public safety perspective. There were four arrests for non injury related incidents, vandalism, public intoxication and mutual combat.

    Overall 26 businesses activated their spaces under the city special event permit process and again, overall it was a successful event and we look forward to having it again next year.”

    The City of West Hollywood’s Halloween Carnaval, returned in 2023 to the City’s Rainbow District along Santa Monica Boulevard on October 31, 2023, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. The event was free to attend and open to the public. It was a one-mile stretch of Historic Route 66 along Santa Monica Boulevard between N. Doheny Drive and N. La Cienega Boulevard. The event will featured a stage at the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and N. San Vicente Boulevard with a live DJ set, food trucks, and thousands of wildly dressed people in Halloween costumes for a one-of-a-kind experience.

    First launched in 1987, West Hollywood’s celebration of Halloween is rooted in the City’s diverse culture and community. Year by year, what became known as the City’s Halloween Carnaval grew into an annual gathering of phenomenal costumes, entertainment, culture, and self-expression with a myriad of observers, revelers, exhibitionists, and performers with many thousands of people in attendance each year.

    I could tell how bad the economy is because of so few costumes. No one has the time or money to put into it right now. But SO GLAD all the local biz people got full houses of customers!

    Next year put the stage on the north side of Santa Monica Blvd. and face the speakers blasting music to the south for a change. The neighborhood to the north always gets the brunt of it. Pride, Halloween, and every other event the city holds throughout the year.
