While the Almuñécar Halloween, and generally in Spain, isn’t a big tradition for trick or treat and costumes, there are a few fun things going on. It tends to be more of the zombies and scary events, but there are some for the little kids too. We have included Halloween activities for Maro, La Herradura, and Almuñécar.
Día de Todos los Santos – All Saints Day
All Saint’s Day is part of the three-day Allhallowtide, honouring the saints and praying for the recently departed souls who haven’t yet reached heaven.
Hallowe’en (a contraction of All Hallows’ Eve) on 31 October
All Saints’ Day on 1 November
All Souls’ Day on 2 November, which commemorates the faithful departed – the souls of all good who have passed.
Some stores will be closed or have special hours, please contact them for their hours. If you find out, you may place their hours in our comments below.
