There is always a mixed bag of nocturnal events set to terrorize the South Bay when Halloween comes to town and this weekend looks horribly spooky with adult sized Halloween parties and special events for trick or treaters. Have a terrifying weekend!
Below are a list of horrific South Bay Events.
Cheech Marin of Cheech & Chong Give the South Bay a ‘Peek Into Chicano Art’ Cheech Marin’s high minded humor is considered to be one of the founders of stoner comedy. A cultural touchstone was embedded into half-baked movie theatres across the nation when he and comedic partner Tommy Chong released “Up in Smoke” in 1978. Today, Marin of the duo comedy team Cheech and Chong, has donated his own private Chicano Art Collection for a public exhibition called A PEEK INTO CHICANO ART showcasing works by 14 Chicano artists. more info
