Hundreds of thousands of Halloween revelers are expected to flock to Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood for the 2010 West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnaval (see entertainment and event schedule) on Halloween night, Sunday, October 31, 2010, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. along Santa Monica Boulevard from Doheny Drive to La Cienega Boulevard.

The large crowd will be arriving in many automobiles, and with street closures for the event compounding what would already be a massive traffic problem, it’s best to plan ahead and arrive early for the event.

Residents of West Hollywood using street parking should be aware that permit parking will be suspended, and you may have trouble finding a parking spot for your vehicle if you vacate one leading up to or during the event.

While permit parking will be suspended in West Hollywood, other regulations will remain in effect.  In addition, those parking on public streets in neighboring Beverly Hills or the City of Los Angeles should be aware that all parking regulations, including permit parking requirements, will be enforced.  These cities may also be stepping up enforcement or implementing special parking rules on streets adjacent to West Hollywood.
