ONCE AGAIN, Torrevieja will be the scene of major Halloween celebrations.

A collaboration between the Torrevieja town hall, Joaquín Chapaprieta Municipal Culture Institute and Apymeco, Polígono Casa Grande and Zoa business associations have organised a number of spectacular activities in both Torrevieja and in nearby La Mata on Tuesday October 31.

From handing out sweets to children that play trick or treat, to giving out a zombie passport that – should they get enough stamps – the bearer can claim a free gift, more than 50 businesses have signed up to take part in the event that is growing in popularity as the years pass.

Free face painting and makeup is available in the Plaza de la Constitución from 4.30pm to 6.30pm and on stage, there will be scary stories from 5.30pm to 6.15pm and again from 6.45pm to 7.30pm.

From 6.30pm until 8pm, the grand Halloween Parade sets off from the Plaza de la Constitución and will proceed along Calles Ramón Gallud, Joaquín Chapaprieta, Pedro Lorca, Rambla Juan Mateo, Caballero de Rodas and then back to the Plaza Constitución for a disco until 10.30pm.

Many of the local restaurants will be joining in the fun by offering some ‘horrific’ zombie menus; and in La Mata there will be a number of activities including face painting and the chance to pose for photographs with some of the scary characters wandering around the area.
