In its 22nd year, Moonfest shows no signs of slowing down. With the blocks of Clematis street covered, there will be three stages with music, carnival rides and games, a costume contest with $1,000 prize, special VIP areas, vendors, food trucks, and new feature Audioplayground Silent Disco. As probably one of West Palm's biggest events of the year, it'll even be pretty damn hard for Halloween to beat.

12. Judas Priest at Hard Rock Live

7:30 p.m., Thursday, October 30, at Hard Rock Live, One Seminole Way, Hollywood. Visit

Judas Priest will not be breaking the law but breaking your eardrums at Hard Rock on the eve of the big day. Rob Halford will summon the metal spirits with his howl on the South Florida stop of the Redeemer of Souls tour.

11. Mai-Kai Annual Halloween Party

Friday, October 31, at the Mai-Kai, 3599 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Visit

Fort Lauderdale's Polynesian-themed restaurant will be celebrating its sixth annual Hulaween in the Molokai bar this Friday. You'll want to go hard on the half off drinks so that dancing to live tunes by Slip and the Spinouts. Need some snacks with your Barrel o' Rum? Appetizers will be half off, too. Don't forget to look your best if you want to get "lei"-ed later that night.
