Headless Halloween and Deadly Dia De Los Muertos events in University Park and Expo Park neighborhoods

There are dozens of free, spooky and safe events in the around USC. Most of the schools in the area have costume parades and contests. The students at St. Vincent's Catholic School celebrate All Saints Day instead and the kids dress up as their favorite saint.

Here's a list of some we found (please add a comment with info of others you may know about):

Haunted House at Hoover Recreation Center

The officials Halloween Party Site for the City of Los Angeles Parks and Recreation Department will fill the park, basketball and gym with with inflatable games, a haunted house and candy.

4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Free but a real carnival with rides will cost $5 for three tickest.

Rosedale Cemetery, West Adams


Full of Egyptian-style pyramid mausoleums, loads of marble angels and weeping figures of stone, Rosedale turns 125 in November.

Although Academy Award winning actress Hattie McDaniel of "Gone With the Wind" wished to be buried at what is now Hollywood Forever, its owners forbade it, so the pioneering African American actress was interred after her death in 1952 at this West Adams location, according to the latimes.com.

It was the first cemetery in Los Angeles County open to all races and creeds. Hollywood Forever now has a monument honoring McDaniel.

Rosedale is also the final resting place for Chinese American actress Anna May Wong, serial killer Louise Peete and jazz great Art Tatum.


Spirits of Troy


Tricks and treats with USC students as part of the University Residential Student Community Halloween festivities.

Jumping castles, haunted houses and bobbing for apples in the center of campus and door-to-door trick or treating in the dorms.

The University Residential Student Community, along with Troy Camp and Panhellenic Halloween Carnival, have been holding the festival for neighborhood kids for 15 years.

Inglewood Park Cemetery

Blues legend Big Mama Thornton, pin up model Betty Grable, the inventor of the Caesar salad, the man who tracked down Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid and "Little Mouse," Charlie Chaplin's son Norman, who lived just three days, all live in harmony in Inglewood Park.

Acting Scared at The 24th Street Theatr

The Halloween Celebration is from 6 to 10 PM on Saturday, October 31st, and their Dia de los Muertos Celebration on Monday, November 2nd from 6:30 to 10:30 PM.
