WHollywoodCarnevale halloween-2013One of the evening’s biggest highlights will be the honorary crowning of the “Queen of the Carnaval” and the City of West Hollywood is excited to announce that Queen Latifah will be receiving the 2013 title!

Enter the costume contest or just enjoy the parade. The theme for the 2013 Halloween Carnaval is One Noir Night in West Hollywood and it will feature 6 stages and over 50 performers. If you didn’t know it already, 1950′s Noir was an epic era in West Hollywood. This famous era will be resurrected at the West Hollywood Carnaval with a humorous twist. Think cop capers and old (West) Hollywood glam.
