Noted on My Fox LA last year for its large-scale commitment to costumed bacchanalia, Halloween OC is a chance to ring in the year’s ghostliest holiday with about 15,000 like-minded, bizarrely dressed creatures of the night. The crowd-swelled energy of zombie armies, Frankenstein battalions, and vampire Kiwanis clubs will flood the event’s six giant party rooms and two VIP lounges. At each supernatural-species-based station, you’ll find on-stage entertainment ranging from live bands to undead DJs, and surprise guest performances and mysterious celebrity appearances are also likely. Document your proof of being human with the haunted-house photo booth, and enter the sexy costume contest for a shot at $2,500 and a deer head stuffed with nickels.

The Hawaiian owners of Kula Nalu Ocean Sports take pride in their heritage and Hawaii's surf culture. As a way of sharing this pride with others, they pass on their extensive knowledge through surfing and standup-paddleboard lessons. Staff members certified in CPR, first aid, and basic life support start each lesson by analyzing each student's physical condition and adapting the lesson to their learning style and skill level.

Lessons begin at Kula Nalu's specialized training facility. In that controlled environment, the staff teaches all the principles of ocean safety, from wave identification to dealing with on-water mistakes. Onsite simulators allow students to practice catching and riding waves without worrying about taking a spill or giving the right-of-way to wayward ghost ships. These sessions ready surfers for the moment the instructors take them to a nearby beach to begin their on-water practice. In addition to surf and standup-paddleboard lessons, the staff also provides personal-training sessions and competitive surf training that delves into the sport's mental and physical demands.

At Ruby Karen Project, founder Ruby Karen uses dynamic choreography and acrobatic skills that earned her an appearance on So You Think You Can Dance to create classes that fuse aerial arts, dance, and fitness techniques. Her staff of trained instructors lead children and adults through exhilarating sessions that incorporate a variety of equipment, including silks, flying poles, and trapeze. Clients develop strength, balance, and coordination?not to mention defined arm muscles?as they learn aerial movements and techniques for defying gravity. From ballet barre workouts to hammock-assisted aerial yoga to any of the other classes offered at the studio, safety is always put first as instructors guide students through every new skill. Being a mobile performing arts school grants the Ruby Karen Project the freedom to set up classes in new locations, bringing aerial classes to more people and maybe, one day, mermaids confined to the beach.
