As October 31 rapidly approaches, there are few considerations more timely (and more fun) than how to make the most of your Halloween! For those who live in Los Angeles and the surrounding area, there are literally hundreds of options from which to choose, and it can be tricky (or treaty?) to know which way to go. To help you skip the stress and have the best Halloween ever, here’s a master list of the top ten Halloween events in Los Angeles for 2015!

1. Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort
Whether you’re just in it for the candy or looking to relive the holidays of your childhood, Disneyland is the perfect place to spend Halloween 2015.
