Enjoy Halloween in Madrid

If you are looking for having fun the most terrific night of the year and you want to celebrate Halloween in Madrid.

Madrid greets Halloween with a plethora of exciting events and activities for the whole family, from Halloween pub crawl and flamboyant themed parties organized by the capital’s discos to great entertaining shows held in the main amusement parks.  A few spots in the city hold activities dedicated to Halloween (of course, this occasion gives reason to do business to the city’s tourists).  A familiar option for spending Halloween in Madrid is going to The Warner Park where are held the best Halloween parties in Madrid with terror spectacles and entertainment shows perfect for all ages, furthermore, they usually serve special Halloween meals. If you want some scare, the Zoo Aquarium and Faunia showcase something that has to do with that.

 
One way to spend your Halloween in the city is to visit one of its famous cemeteries, the Our lady of Almudena Cemetery.
The Cementerio de Nuestra Señora de La Almudena is the largest cemetery in the city and one of the largest throughout the Western Europe. With an estimate of over five million bodies buried in the cemetery, many famous personalities are buried there. If you want some real Halloween feeling in Madrid, you must not miss the party in the gothic clubs of the city near Gran Via.  Among the highlights in Madrid Halloween is the Semana Gotica de Madrid (Madrid Gothic Week) which takes place from October 24-November 1. Here, concerts, magic, and other ‘spectacles’ are to be expected.  It is a cultural event whose sixth edition will be held in 2014 in different venues around the city of Madrid. Its multidisciplinary nature makes it a unique event, not only in Europe but also worldwide. During the event you will enjoy the Gothic culture at length: literature, cinema, dance, theatre, concerts, fashion, art and an academic conference.The search for light in the darkness (lumen in tenebris ) is a fundamental key to understand our urban gothic subculture. Alternative realities, creativity, introspective journey, the expressive desire, a taste for art and exploration of the unknown are timeless links that converge in the SGM.

If you do not have your costume ready yet for enjoying Halloween in Madrid, the night October 31 in Madrid, you can go to Serrano Street, where you can find everything for the most terrific night of the year at shops, make-up, fake blood, costumes, accessories, decorations…

Despite the lack of merry-making and parties in Madrid during Halloween, tourists can still consider this time in the city as a perfect opportunity to get to know Madrid more.
