Ayia Napa is dressing up in a festive spirit this October with a Halloween event in the main square. Although the weather has been rather grim the last few days, Ayia Napa remains hopeful and hopes its ‘Halloween in the sun’ event will entertain the masses.
This is the second year the town’s municipality is organising the event. “This is the most scary-fun celebration of the year, a foreign custom, which is set to be celebrated on the night of October 31,” say organisers yet Ayia Napa’s Halloween night is set for Sunday.
The event will kick off at 7pm in the upper part of the Central Square, which, like the surrounding bars, cafés and clubs, will be decorated with Halloween ornaments, such as carved pumpkins, spiders and candles. A haunted house is expected to entertain old and young and the organisers encourage all those that attend to dress up accordingly. Dragons, witches, zombies, ghosts or monsters, everything is on the table that evening.
Besides getting spooked in eerie houses, the event’s schedule includes music by well-known DJs, Halloween parades, a best costume contest, parties for both young and adults, candy Halloween creations, face painting and Halloween accessories, a fire show from the Belarusian Steam Show and a children’s corner.
