Marina Spooktacular offers Halloween fun for the whole family on the Los Angeles waterfront. Enjoy free admission to this two-day festival in Burton Chace Park, Marina del Rey. Daytime activities are kid-friendly, but when night falls, the park evolves into a field of frights with tours of L.A.’s only haunted pirate ships, recommended for brave souls age 13 and up.
Enjoy face painting, carnival games, bounce houses, food vendors, a kids tractor ride, pumpkin carving and crafts, DJ music, and more all day. Ongoing tours of the pirate ships will be non-scary in the daytime but haunted at night and recommended for ages 13 and up. Plus, check out these time-specific events -->
