Noche en Negro brings Halloween fun and fear

A night when chills are a pleasure

HALLOWEEN is no longer exclusive to English-speaking residents and has become a popular Spanish fiesta too.

Almeria City is organising a Noche en Negro when shops, bars and restaurants will stay open until late to boost local commerce.  In keeping with the Halloween theme there will be a full complement of witches, warlocks, weirdoes and zombies.  

Noche en Negro begins in Puerta Purchena at 8.30 with an “Aerial spectacle.” This is followed at 9pm by a parade with “batucada” drummers, monsters and as many members of public who want to join in, with the only proviso that they wear Halloween costume.

Plaza de la Constitucion will be set aside for the young from 7pm until 11pm, themed on the Juan sin Miedo (Fearless John) story.

Plaza Pablo Cazard becomes a Boarding School of Horrors for the over-14s with the promise of “terror, intrigue and mystery.” 

The parade that started in Puerta Purchena will end at 10pm at Plaza del Educador where there will be dancing to a DJ from 9pm.

A Mystery Market opens at 8pm in Paseo de Almeria with a Zumba display at 9.30pm and Halloween Karaoke from 10.30pm.

Noche en Negro will have a total of 30 different activities with 250 businesses remaining open.
