Throw on your capes and open up your treat sacks, because this is the weekend we start taking Halloween seriously. True, in some corners Halloween has always been deadly serious (as in full-on Zombie attack), but for the most part we have been attending our trick or treateries sans costumes, and more in onlooker mode. Well, no more. This weekend you start trick-or-treating at the LA Zoo. You can trick-or-treat at the Santa Ana Zoo. You can trick-or-treat with cheerleaders, and you can trick-or-treat with bugs (though hopefully not for bugs).

You can party with faeries (no, that's not a costume; they always dress like that). You can party with cops (no, that's not a costume; they always dress like that). You can party with the notorious RBG. (Not all superheroes wear capes.)

You can get pumpkinspumpkins, pumpkins, from a town called pumpkin (ish), and then you can watch as they light up the night. And it's all just a rehearsal for the big show to come!
