7 plans for celebrating Halloween 2016 in Barcelona
The night of magical spirits is getting closer… yes, it’s almost Halloween! Although here in Barcelona it’s traditional to roast chestnuts and sweet potatoes at this time of year, costumes, pumpkins and other Halloween traditions are now part of the celebrations too.
If you’re wondering how to celebrate Halloween 2016 in Barcelona, we’ve got a whole host of ideas for you!
MYSTERY TOURS IN BARCELONA – If you fancy taking a stroll with a difference, try one of these guided tours to discover the city’s secrets, legends and mysteries. Choose from a vampire tour, a tour to discover the city’s paranormal activity or a tour to unravel the legends of the Barrio Gótico.
HORROR ESCAPE ROOM – If you want to crank up the tension, what better than locking yourself in an escape room with your friends and trying to solve the clues and riddles to get out alive? Check out these horror escape rooms in Barcelona: Ouija, Jigsaw, House of Whispers and Picadero Motel.
HORROR FILM MARATHON – If you love horror films, but think it’s time to get up off your sofa, you could opt for the Phenomena Halloween special session. This year they’ll be screening Chucky, Pet Cemetery and a surprise movie. It’s on 31 October from 9 pm.
HALLOWEEN AT POBLE ESPANYOL – Here’s an idea for the whole family with more than just bloodcurdling screams in the dark. Halloween at Poble Espanyol runs family activities where kids can join in the fun: zombie batucada, costume competition, pumpkin workshop, horror tunnel and more. It’s on Sunday 30 October from 11 am onwards.
HALLOWEEN AT PORT AVENTURA – 2016 A classic that never goes out of fashion: Halloween at Port Aventura, where you can get the fright of your life at their exclusive shows and performances. Fight the [REC] epidemic, discover the secret passageways in Penitence and dance to the beat of the Day of the Dead. Are you brave enough?
HORROR DINNERS – Would you rather go out for dinner? Try Enigmatium, a restaurant running a Halloween dinner show. The fun starts before dinner, though, because you have to guess where it is by solving the clues you’re given when you book. Or you could go to La Posada Maldita, a horror-theme restaurant full of laughs and screams.
THE DARK CEREMONY HORROR MARKET – If you love buying horror goods and monster products, you have to call by Horror Market, where you’ll find more than 20 stands, performances, film screenings and kids’ activities and a costume competition. It’s on 23 October from noon to 9 pm.
