Gird your loins, Los Angeles.
The world's largest Halloween street party is expected to welcome 500,000 guests along a 9-block chunk of Santa Monica Boulevard this Friday night. (Commuters - and anyone who owns a car - you have been warned.)
One of the many performances taking place at the Main Stage belongs to solo artist (and US Weekly fashion contributor) Ricky Rebel whose 2013 single, “Geisha Dance”, spent 10 weeks on the Mediabase chart that powers On Air with Ryan Seacrest. Now, he’s releasing “The Blue Album”, mixed by Claudio Cueni (JLo), after recently playing with Grammy-winner Mya. He can be spotted on stage alongside Kelly Mantle (RuPaul's Drag Race) in two appearances throughout the night.
Also appearing at the Carnaval? Countless scantily-clad boys and girls who will be looking for tricks that will treat them well into the wee hours of Saturday morning.
Be safe, kids.
