Happy October 1!

October is here, and Fall is in there air! (Well, if you count 88 degrees and sunny as fall weather, that is - thanks, Global Warming!)

Anyway, do not forget that today marks the opening of several Halloween-themed events around Los Angeles: the Beyond Fest at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood; the LA. Zoo's Boo at the Zoo; the Queen Mary Dark Harbor in Long Beach; Rise of the Jack O'Lanterns at Descanso Gardens; and Vampirates at the Pirates Dinner Adventure in Buena Park.

If you do not begin attending these events now, you will only become increasingly overwhelmed as more events open on the weekend, with even more to come in the following weeks. It's time to get on your broom and fly!
