Little Tokyo - Downtown Los Angeles
So Little Tokyo is trying to get in the Halloween fun. Though nothing is really standing out. We would love a haunted house in the style we see of school festivals that happen in anime all the time.

"Experience Little Tokyo like never-before as the heart of Downtown LA transforms for the month of October with spooky themed-activities and frightening fun. Pick your perfect pumpkin at the weekend pumpkin patches by Tanaka Farms at the Japanese Village Plaza and the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center. Dress up your little monsters for ghoulish games, trick-or-treating, and FREE family-friendly movie screenings including Studio Ghibli's "Kiki's Delivery Service" and "My Neighbor Totoro.”  Learn of the legendary Little Tokyo ghost tales and the city’s history in the Little Tokyo haunted walking tours, or test your fears watching classic Japanese horror flicks including the 2002 supernatural film “Ju-on: The Grudge.” Dress your best on October 28 as the month-long celebration culminates to a Little Tokyo block party with a costume parade, bar crawl, live entertainment, special food and drink discounts, and more."
