Nights Of The Jack is the perfect culmination of everything Halloween—more than 20 food trucks, a “spookeasy,” walking trail, pumpkin carving, and an obligatory gift shop. It’s touted as “L.A.’s top immersive Halloween experience,” and given the list of activities on offer, it may just live up to that name. Ring in the new season with a fun, spooky, holiday experience.

For the next stop on his “World’s Hottest Tour,” he joins the City of Angels at SoFi Stadium, and trust us, this is one you won’t want to miss. [More info]
