Halloween, celebrated on the 31st of October every year, is known as a festivity where adults and children dress up in scary-themed costumes and, in addition, children take to the streets to beg for sweets and chocolate on the doorsteps of houses with the phrase "trick or treat"?
Many years ago, Mallorca, influenced by American television and series, started to celebrate Halloween in schools and thus have a reason to celebrate for the little ones.
Over the years, the original celebration has been mixed and merged with other festivities from other cultures and in the 7th century, the Pontifical Council officially declared 1 November as All Saints' Day, with 31 October being the eve of All Hallow's Eve, the term from which the word Halloween originates.
For this reason, discotheques and nightclubs take advantage of this eve to celebrate Halloween parties with great success. In addition, many restaurants and bars have themed their premises and prepare "terrifying" menus for the delight of their guests. Also, from 18:00 hrs. The streets fill up with children in the central areas, walking in groups and dressed up in different costumes, always with a touch of terror to make it more fun.
Pumpkins are the emblem of this Halloween festival, in the area of Playa de Palma there are also events organised for the tourists who visit this wonderful area at this time of the year. Palma Aquarium organises many activities and children have the option to stay overnight, this event has become very popular and more and more families are giving their children this fun activity, where children sleep in their sleeping bags in the shark area.
Marineland also organises its big fancy dress competition for all residents and tourists, and children in fancy dress get free entry to the park.
Another park that also organises its big party is Katmandu park, giving the option of spending a few days in the Katmandu sol hotel where families have a great time with all the activities organised by the great animation team.
