Fall and Winter Fun in the South Bay

The days are a little shorter and the temperatures are a little cooler during the fall and winter months, but that does not mean that these seasons are short on activities. Add these events to your calendar and plan to soak up all that fall and winter have to offer in the South Bay!

Port of Los Angeles Happy Halloween and Pet Parade

Celebrate Halloween on the water at this family-friendly event held in late October each year. The day begins with a pet costume parade, and ends with food and games for the whole family.

This free event has two locations: Downtown Harbor in San Pedro and Wilmington Waterfront Park. Visit the LA Waterfront website for more information. The LA Waterfront holds events year-round, including a few others during the fall and winter months.

Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks

Only in Southern California can you find fireworks in the middle of December. This annual display is the Manhattan Beach area’s signature holiday event and draws thousands of spectators to kick off the holiday season at Manhattan Beach Pier.

Beyond the fireworks, the event also includes a Santa float parade and a family holiday carol singalong. The event has been going strong for more than 30 years and fireworks are faithfully launched at 7 p.m. rain or shine. Make sure to get there early if you want a good seat for the show!
