The scariest night of the year is here. Tomorrow, Tuesday 31st of October, the international celebration of All Saints’ Eve, known as Halloween, one of the most universal festivities, filling the streets and houses with pumpkins, skeletons and ghosts, arrives in every corner of the world.
Although the original celebration in Catalonia was the Castanyada, Halloween is becoming more and more deeply rooted in popular culture, thus coexisting with Catalan tradition. In this sense, Costa Dorada joins, another year, to the celebration of this night of terror, with a wide range of magnificent proposals for both young and old, from passages of terror, themed spaces, parties, catering and entertainment, to make you live a day of the most terrifying.
If you don’t want to miss any of the options presented in this article, we suggest you spend Halloween, and the next few days, on Costa Dorada, to make the most of the holiday. Shuttle2Sun offers its private transfer services, low-cost and sustainable, to get to towns like Salou, Vila-seca La Pineda, Cambrils or Tarragona, from Barcelona Airport, Barcelona Port and Camp de Tarragona AVE train station.
