'Twilight' fans brave cold night for premiere
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The drastic change in weather is really being felt in downtown Los Angeles, where die-hard "Twilight" fans are braving the November cold for the premiere of the last film in the vampire series.
Some fans traveled from as far as Mexico and some have been camping out as early as Thursday - all to stake their spot to get a glimpse of Bella, Edward and Jacob in the flesh as they walk the "black" carpet for the premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" at the Nokia Theatre on Monday.
"Twi-hards" woke up to temperatures in the 40s in the make-shift tent city set up at L.A. Live. A group of about 2,000 spent the night huddled in colorful tents, many decorated with their favorite "Twilight" characters.
Fans bundled up and took the chilly SoCal weather in stride. Eryka Bradford, who came all the way from Ottawa, Canada, said she's used to dealing with cold conditions. She said she put on layers and huddled in her sleeping bag to keep warm.
Wendi Reynolds from New Jersey said camping in the cold will all be worth it.
"It's a little bit of cold weather. I have my heavy jacket on. I'm set. I'm ready to camp," Reynolds said.
The weather is expected to stay on the cooler side through the weekend but warm up to the 70s by Monday in Los Angeles.
