La Herradura – Almuñécar Halloween & All Saints Day


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.
