Show the witch in you on Halloween

halloween malaga 2013Although Halloween is a concept that is foreign to the Mediterranean culture, in Malaga it is gaining more followers every year. The reasons may be many or a mixture of them all: The locals of Malaga are generally known for their partying, thus there won´t be left out a good occasion to celebrate.

Celebrate Halloween in Malaga, happy Halloween on the Costa del Sol

Although Halloween is a celebration of Celtic origin, popular in the United States, the “Feast of darkness” to be held the evening of October 31, has landed in Malaga and the Costa del Sol full on, where are planned many activities and parties. Not only the kids in Malaga enjoy dressing up in nightmare fancy dresses and go out in the streets with an air of carnival-like fun.

In Malaga city for example, has been organized for several years a “Zombie Walk”, citing hundreds of undead and other monsters in the Plaza of the Constitution to walk the main streets of Old Town. The oldest Protestant cemetery of the peninsula, the English Cemetery in Malaga, celebrates Halloween with some peculiar night visits in which several actors pretend to be the protagonists of the graveyard and narrate their stories in first person to visitors who come to the cemetery between 8 pm and 12 pm.

But the terrifying fun does not stop there. We can ensure that the locals of Malaga are famous for their tireless lively nightlife and won´t let slip the opportunity of celebrating a terribly fun night in the many clubs along the Costa del Sol which have prepared gruesome decorations according to the theme of this gloomy night.
