Join hordes of rotting revelers for
Long Beach’s annual zombie outbreak,
THREE DAY invasion of the walking dead who will channel
their inner zombie as they take over Long Beach.

The Annual 2018 Long Beach Zombie Fest will be held October 19-21, at the Rainbow Lagoon in Long Beach, California. Long Beach Zombie Fest scares up a hell of a good time in truly macabre fashion with an assortment of activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Costumes are encouraged, but not mandatory. COME DEAD OR ALIVE!

DON’T HAVE A COSTUME? Halloween is a classic holiday for getting things done at the last minute, if at all. Long Beach Zombie Fest takes the stress out of costume shopping by providing a team of killer Hollywood artists from Cinema Makeup School to turn you into a flesh-eating zombie. This service is completely free, too.

Join hordes of rotting revelers for Long Beach’s annual zombie outbreak, a THREE DAY invasion of undead music and horror for all ages! This apocalyptic festival is a jam-packed day of live entertainment and a horde of other fun activities. With costume and brain contests for all ages and stages of decay, and of course, thousands of Zombies, it would be horrific to miss this jam-packed event.

David Allen Exhibit: Mastectomy Tattoos and Post-Surgery Healing

International Museum of Surgical Science

September 1, 2018 – November 25, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, August 31, 2018, 5:30 – 8:00pm. Free and open to the publicRegister Here.


David Allen: Mastectomy Tattoo Innovation

David Allen has been tattooing women who have undergone mastectomies since 2010. Typically recreating the nipple shape, mastectomy tattoos have been around for some time. David’s work, however, uses design principles to draw attention away from the scarring. This process has quickly become a new, viable option to help women take back control. For him and his clients, the tattoo station has become a place of listening, caring, and approaching an area of trauma for revitalization.

Taking on a handful of clients a month, Allen’s screening process is incredibly thorough. He states that he spends more time talking with the women than working on them. Since Allen recognizes the tattoo procedure as a healing process, it’s important to sense that a client is ready to begin that process. While the tattoo work itself is individually-focused and highly technical, Allen claims that the tattoo for him is of less importance than the sharing of trauma, stories, emotions and the demonstrations of empathy.

So crazy, stupid excited for the opening of the @davidallen exhibit at @surgicalmuseumchicago ❤️❤️❤️ As someone with many, many surgical scars that sometimes vie to define my body and reauthor my corporeal being in accordance with their narrative rather than one of my own choosing, being tattooed by this artistic miracle worker of a man would be a dream come true. I might never get that opportunity (although hey, @davidallen, if you happen to read this, I’m totally game if you are 😊) but I am so ready to marvel at the beauty of those who have had the opportunity to be transformed at the intersection of his hands and their courage. 💕💜💪🏼 #tattoo #tattoos #beauty #artist #tattoosthatheal #tattoosthattransform #mastectomytattoos #mastectomy #breastcancer #courage #strength #survivor #female #surgery #scars #scarsarebeautiful #surgicalscars #chronie #spoonie #ulcerativecolitis #fighter #unstoppable #ibd #ocd #warrior #nocolonstillrollin #fangirl #scholar #internationalmuseumofsurgicalscience #chicago

The Temple, Galaxia 🌋 For years I’ve wanted to come here and pay tribute to those I have loved and lost. I still wasn’t ready to feel so overwhelmed when I finally made it out. It was the early hours of the morning, still dark, and people were sharing headphones to listen to a piano from off in the distance. I immediately felt so connected and so emotional. I made it. I am here. I’m alive. I have survived everything up to this point. And even though some of the people I loved more than anything are no longer here, their love is still with me. And I’m so grateful for the ones who have been able to stay in my life and choose me every day. I came back to the temple multiple times, inculding once for sunrise. I am here. I am alive. And I am loved. Thank you to everyone who made this a possibility.

Bob’s Big Boy® Weekly Classic Car Show

Visit Bob’s Big Boy® in Burbank, CA for their weekly Classic Car Show – a throw back to the ’50’s.

Winner for 8/24 from @tracyberna ! #bobsbigboyburbank #fridaynightcarshow #neonlights #bobsbigboy

A post shared by Bob’s Big Boy® Burbank (@bobsbigboyburbank) on

In the early afternoon, a buzzy retro scene begins to unfold as car enthusiasts cruise in looking for prime spots where the tower sign’s red neon might reflect off their freshly polished hoods.

People say, “It’s American Grafitti come to life.” Big-block Chevy’s. Hot-rod Lincolns. Leave the Hybrid at home. Happy days are here again thanks to Bob’s Big Boy® and the Road Kings of Burbank.

Weekly cars shows are a slice of Americana, but no place does them quite like Bob’s Big Boy®, where the food is hot and the cars are hotter.

You’ll never know who or what you’re going to see. Brian Wilson, the genius behind the Beach Boys, showed up to take in the little deuce coupes he used to sing about. And Jay Leno, well he’s more than just a regular.

Come see why we’ve become the center of the car-crazed universe.

The Burbank Bob’s Big Boy was built in 1949 and is the oldest Bob’s Big Boy in the nation.  Famed British musical group The Beatles dined at the Burbank location during their 1965 U.S. Summer Tour. The “FAB 4” wanted to dine at a real American diner.  A plaque at the booth describes the event. You can even request to sit at the “Beatles Booth.”

Boney Island in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, CA

Tucked away in a small corner of Los Angeles is a magical place that comes to life every October for guests of all ages to enjoy. Held for 19 years in a residential neighborhood, Boney Island now comes to life this year in Griffith Park at the Los Angeles Live Steamers between their “Ghost Train” and Travel Town.

 

It’s the most fun you’ll have this Halloween season!
Boney Island features skeletons performing rope tricks, levitating through hoops, and shadow puppetry. There are side show-type gags and a host of other oddities, including singing shrubbery, anti-gravity water, bantering spiders, a flock of skeletal hummingbirds, and many other details that even long-time fans will not have seen on previous visits.
All of your favorites are back, plus the skeletons have a few new tricks up their sleeves!

#boneyisland is back. Bigger and better. Can’t wait for October!

A post shared by John Douglas (@ultraindy) on

See Maestro Maxilla, your animated skeleton host, and a cluster of rascally cauldrons that have minds – and attitudes – of their own. Water dances and leaps from cauldron to cauldron as music plays, and a stunning assortment of grinning Jack-o’-lanterns perform, all synced in time with the music!
Prepare to be dazzled!
