Renaissance Pleasure Faire lets you imagine yourself in the world of 16th century England. A cast of 1,000s in period costume, music, dance, jugglers, games of skill, kings, queens, Shakespeare, Punch and Judy, BBQ turkey legs, straw, jesters ... it's all waiting for you from May through June in the San Bernardino County.

Despite the pedestrian web page, one of the wildest, craziest nights in LA has got to be West Hollywood's Halloween Carnaval. Billed as the largest Halloween party in country ... over 350,000 revelers stroll up and down closed to traffic Santa Monica Blvd. with thousands flaunting their outrageous costumes. Live music, food, and festivities until midnight make this R-rated (gay themed but straight friendly) event an experience not to be missed.

The Watts Summer Festival is going on 40 years of being the pre-eminent African American cultural event. Held every August, this 3 day festival provides art, film, fashion, food, games, concerts and more.

Every December, The Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade provides a beautiful variation on holidays lights, with many boat owners trying to outdo each for most spectacular display. Watch from the shore, of take a cruise and be part of the parade yourself.
