Huntington Beach Downtown Business Improvement District's Halloween Celebration
Photos and Information  

People dress in Halloween costumes in Huntington Beach include Edward Scissorhands and Little Red Riding Hood's Big Bad Wolf character

Edward Scissorhands and the Big Bad Wolf from the Little Red Riding Hood tale at Main Street Trick or Treat in Huntington Beach

Walking down the middle of Main Street in downtown Huntington Beach on Halloween night, three characters from movies and fiction approach. It's Edward Scissorhands, the Big Bad Wolf from Little Red Riding Hood wearing grandmother's robe and a figure of black with no face, no hands appearing. This special night transforms the City of Huntington Beach into a wonderland of make believe. The Hollywood influence of the movie industry is felt throughout California and in Surf City where actors live. Adults embrace opportunities to masquerade themselves in costumes adapted from plays, movies, fables and ordinary life events.  The Halloween Night began over a decade ago as a safe, fun place for kids to trick-or-treat. Adults that frequent downtown restaurants, pubs and clubs find this night a special treat, as well. With Main Street closed for several hours, it gives them a chance to parade along the boulevard and look at other costumes. 

Huntington Beach, California or Surf City Main Street has closed around 4 p.m. on October 31 to make way for the annual Halloween Celebration. Downtown merchants hand out candy to trick or treat youth from 6 to 8:30 p.m. when the street is designated a children's fun zone. Moon bounces, pony rides, petting zoo, balloons and a costume contest all make this a night to remember. And it's totally free. See the events calendar for details.
