PICK OF THE MONTH
Pageant of the Monsters
October 26-28, 31
The legendary Pageant of the Masters transforms into the spookier Pageant of the Monsters this month. But this masterfully creepy event doesn’t come around every Halloween, so you don’t want to miss it. Located on the grounds of Laguna Beach’s Festival of Arts, the unique evening of eeriness (6 pm-9:30 pm) offers wandering zombies encounters, creepy crafts projects and an artfully twisted haunted house.
