Raucous Halloween in West Hollywood; wet Halloween in Newport Beach

Big crowds have converged on West Hollywood for the annual Halloween Carnaval.

Despite all the partying, it appears many participants still have time to Twitter the scene (it's pretty entertaining in itself). This year's event will include a tribute to the "Rocky Horror Picture Show" as well as an attempt to set a world-record "The Time Warp" dance.

Gary Marshall of Costa Mesa sports a "crazy professor" costume, which won him the scariest costume award in the Blackie's Classics Longboard Assn. Halloween Surf Costume contest at the Newport Pier.

Meanwhile, surfers put on their best (waterproof) costumes for Blackie's Classics Longboard Assn. Halloween Surf Costume contest at the Newport Pier. Gary Marshall of Costa Mesa, above, sported a "crazy professor" costume, which won him the scariest costume award.
