With traditional ghoul-and-goblin celebrations slightly curbed this season, here are a few ways to have fun safely and close to home.

Tonight, Friday 30 October, fans of The Nightmare Before Christmas can enjoy a pop-up drive-in movie screening at Rolling Hills Estates’ Ernie Howlett Park. Free treat bags while supply lasts; gates open at 5pm.

The South Coast Botanic Garden has been a go-to restorative haven for the community throughout this COVID season. Everyone is invited to enjoy the Garden’s festive, costume-and-mask Bingo Halloween hunt, going on Saturday, October 31, all day long. Advance ticket purchase required.

Trunk-or-Treat is haunting the Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo on Saturday, October 31 from 10am-1pm. Lots of family fun with hearses and spooky cars on exhibit, coffee bar, "wickedly delicious" food truck meals, costume contests and games. Free admission.
