You can now create events on Google+ and everything is basically the same as on Facebook.
The options for choosing and inviting friends are here, setting the location, picking the right photo (or theme!), plus some other minor extras.
There are some details worth noticing though, you can make the event happening strictly online by choosing Google+ Hangout as the place of event. There is also integration between the Google services so your G+ events show up on Google Calendar.
