Halloween is approaching and I know a lot of international but also local families are wondering if anything is happening in Lisbon…
Portugal, as most of the southern countries in Europe, hasn’t got a recent tradition for Halloween, and usually, they have bank holidays on the 1st and sometimes 2nd of November, that are the days when Catholicism celebrate All Saints (the 1st) and on the 2nd usually people pay a visit to the deaths.
But as usual, globalization has brought all over the world festivities that were unknown and now a lot of people everywhere are looking to celebrate Halloween and get some fun doing Trick or Treat.
I’m in Italy visiting my family and on Thursday we’ll have a big lunch with my entire Mother’s family.
But I selected some events that will happen in Lisbon from October 31st.
Festa Halloween na Aldeia with Maria Catrapumbas – from 6 months
Festa da Noite Halloween at Jardim Zoologico -(3-8 YO but might be they accepts younger kids)
Halloween Origami Workshop at LX Factory
Lisboa Halloween Parade 2018 in Areeiro
Fiesta De Los Muertos da Fábrica Braço de Prata (just for Grownups)
Halloween no Buzz Lisboeta – Food and inflatable castles. Better make a reservation

Enjoy your Halloween 2018 💀👻🎃!
