Halloween Happenings in Long Beach

For some of us, this is actually “the most wonderful time of the year.” Halloween is just a fun season, especially in Long Beach. People go all-out decorating their houses with spooky ghosts, creepy spiders, and festive pumpkins. Seasonal fall ingredients start popping up on menus, and it’s not a challenge to come across some Halloween inspired treats and goodies. Have you dug into the Halloween candy at your house yet? Be honest. We won’t tell.

If you are looking for ways to celebrate Halloween in Long Beach this year, here are a few of our favorite happenings to get out and enjoy with your fellow community members.

Queen Mary Dark Harbor

This is one of the more famous local events and it attracts guests from all over LA County and even the rest of California. Tickets are $20 – $27 and this year you’ll want to take a breather after running for your life through a haunted maze or six. We suggest doing a little detective work to discover one of the four secret bars hidden throughout this ghost-ridden ocean liner that’s been terrifying visitors for ten Halloweens in a row. You can even book a night and stay over at the Queen Mary hotel. If you dare. The Queen Mary has been voted “Top 10 most haunted places on Earth” by Time Magazine.

Trick or Treat on Halloween

Most neighborhoods around Long Beach will be having trick-or-treaters knocking on doors on the night of actual Halloween, which is Wednesday, October 31. Dress up your littles and take a stroll around your neighborhood with a bag to collect your candy and other various treats. If you are kid-less and too old to be knocking on doors, settle in on your front porch, put on your best Halloween attire, and hand out some goodies.
