New Clear Bag Rule for West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval

Revelers are asked to carry their personal items in clear plastic bags due to security reasons.

Thousands of costumed revelers and onlookers will face a new security rule at the annual Halloween Carnaval in West Hollywood.

The event typically draws about half a million people to the streets of West Hollywood. 

"There's always potential when you have that amount of people in a concentrated area that anything is possible," Lt. Daren Diviak of the West Hollywood Sheriff's station said. 

For that reason, deputies will be enforcing a new rule this Halloween. 

Similar to NFL games, no backpacks, totes or camera bags are allowed. Instead, revelers are asked to carry their items in clear plastic bags this year.
