Halloween is traditionally celebrated in several countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day.
It is celebrated by both children and adults, who dress up in frightening or funny masks and costumes, attend bone-chilling attractions, light bonfires and eat sweet treats.
Historically, it marks the start of the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, which ends with All Souls’ Day on November 2 and dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.
Nowadays, the festival has become synonymous for plastic decorations, costumes, carving pumpkins and partying, along with the trick or treat tradition. The Event is arranging cosplay, dance-music, concert, stall, Halloween makeup booth, fun games and more.
In London, New York and many other cities spooky events are popping up all over town to help thrill, scare, and entertain visitors on the scariest night of the year!
Most shops are covered in Halloween decorations, many pubs and clubs decorate and do Halloween events, and tons of tourist attractions run Halloween themed events.
