Remember how fun Halloween was when we were kids? The excitement of choosing a costume, the thrill of collecting candy, and the anticipation of being spooked?! But now that we’re all grown up, we can’t help but notice that Halloween seems to have turned into a barrage of scantily costumes, binge drinking, or a combination of both. If you’re like us, and looking for fun (and healthy) ways to celebrate Halloween, we’ve got you covered! Check out our list of healthy and fun Los Angeles Halloween ideas to enjoy this year!
Enjoy a Halloween season that keeps you on track! You can still enjoy tricks and treats without destroying your liver!
If you love to exercise, love to dress up, and love Rock n’ Roll, you’re in for a real Halloween treat! Now the biggest Halloween half marathon, The Los Angeles Rock n’ Roll run takes you through the streets of downtown Los Angeles on October 30th, with thousands of other dressed up runners for a day that is full of festivities and fun! Enjoy a scenic course, live bands, finishing medals, and even admission to the two-day health and fitness expo. Feeling a little naughty? There is a cold beer waiting for you at the finish line! Drink up! You earned it!
Prepared to be seriously spooked! It’s no surprise that the entertainment capital of the word would pull out on the scary stops to create a whole theme parked dedicated to scaring you this season.

Pooches will dress up for the costume contest, while pup-parents score yummy food, drinks, and 15% discounts on daycare packages and other goodies! This event is a match made in heaven for tail-waggers and their proud mutt mom’s (and dads!).
