Just to update all of you for our meetup on 31st of October, Halloween night.
We will be at the world's largest adult outdoor Halloween event in the City of West Hollywood - The Halloween Costume Carnaval. Another meetup group called the 20's and 30's meetup-LA & OC
would be joining us on Wednesday night to pub-crawl on Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheney and La Cienega. Me, Bill and Wei (from the 20's and 30's meetup) will be going tonight to scout the area to get familar with it.
We will decide on three meeting points on 31st spread out over the night, so we do not miss any of you and you could plan on coming as per your convenience, since we understand it is a worknight. Costumes are obviously not necessary but very strongly recommended as it is a Halloween Costume carnaval and we do not want you to feel out of place
We will be posting more information on our meeting points and times and also about the parking situation. We will also try to arrange carpools, as parking will be difficult because of the large scale of the event. You are most welcome to post on the message board for carpools. If you really want to come out that night, and do not want to drive alone, or are coming for the first time and want to meet us before, do let me or Bill know through the Contact the Organizer
feature on the meetup website and we would be pleased to arrange for you. Primilinary Parking Information -
The City of West Hollywood will suspend permit parking for the Halloween Carnaval from 5 p.m., October 31, 2007 to 6 a.m., November 1, 2007 . So, you can park anwhere on-street but do make sure it's within the limuts of West Hollywood as Los Angeles City's boundaries are very close to the Carnaval.

I have also updated the event
on the website and posted parking details in there. More on the Halloween Carnaval -
What began as a primarily gay and lesbian event has evolved to include every walk of life, attracting more visitors than any other Southland event except the Rose Bowl.This is an event for those who like to watch and be watched. The Boulevard teems with drag queens, superheroes, ghouls and monsters, as well as inventive parodies of the latest pop culture icons.There will also be three stages of live entertainment
, several stages along the party route will feature bands, DJs and stand-up comics
. A huge dance tent
will be pitched, along with scores of vending stations hawking foods and potions
on every block. There will also be a much celebrated costume contest stage at la Peer
on Santa Monica Boulevard. The contest will be at 10 pm. So, If you have not started on those costumes, you had better get to work. According to the city, there will be 20 bracelets given out on Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny and La Cienega from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. These bracelets will be handed out by a secret crew. The magic bracelet will get you on stage at the costume contest to complete for the grand prize of the night.
So come out with us on 31st and BOO!!! the night away. Looking forward to meeting you all.
Look forward for more updates for this event.
