It’s that time again. Hopefully it won’t be as windy as last year. I think we’ll skip the hike and just meet at the festival.

Plenty of food,music, and art to capture.

The Festival runs from 10am-6pm. Any inclined to come back to my place for socializing afterwards are welcome to.

Directions can be found here .

Halloween on Pine

Halloween on Pine

Come out and party at Halloween on Pine!

A Frightening FREE Halloween Festival – 8PM – MIDNIGHT • Pine & Broadway

  • Fabulous food and drink specials from your favorite local eateries.
  • Haunting sights and sounds by DJ Groovy Lu
  • Diabolical dancing by moonlight
  • Hair-raising comedy showcase by the Laugh Factory
  • COSTUME CONTEST! Over $1,000 in prizes: Best Superhero • Best Villain • Best Female Overall • Best Male Overall • Most Outrageous

The event, while not outright ADULT ONLY, I was advised that it’s going to be a bit on the rowdy side, like mini West Hollywood.  So if you want to keep your kids from seeing things they’ll ask about later *ahem*, you might want to sneak out without them.

On a selfish note, I am performing Thriler with a group of Thrill the World Los Angeles and OC zombies at 8:30, then I’ll teach for an hour, and perform again at 9:45.  After that, I’m free to party down.

Join me, won’t you? 🙂

For those of you willing to brave the drive to Lancaster (2 hours north), the California Poppy Festival will be an awesome event to attend and photograph. It is also family friendly.

From the website:

Join us for two days of music music, art, food and fun celebrating the state flower of California and the appearance of poppies in the Antelope Valley! Warm breezes replace the winter chill, jubilant laughter fills the air, and poppies burst into bloom blanketing hillsides in a sea of orange. The California Poppy Festival kicks off spring in the Antelope Valley with a glorious array of celebrated performers, unrivaled events, and mouth-watering delicacies designed to delight, enchant, and amuse people of all ages.

Another option to is do a day hike at the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve.

Let me know your preference in the comments.

Carpooling is recommended.

All are welcome, bring a camera. We’ll meet at the Coffee Bean and then take a photo walk around the area. I’m new to Long Beach, so if someone else wants to lead, that’s great. We can also find a place to chill and people watch/shoot. Maybe try out improv street portraiture.

Don’t forget to sign up at the Upcoming event page and join the LBC Tweetup Upcoming Group.

See you Sunday, Jan 11, at 10 AM at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf on 2nd Street (you know, @agentjon‘s second home)
