Halloween is just around the corner, and it is time to begin the festive season upon us. Holidays are coming and once you realize we are at the beginning of a new year with new resolutions, wishes, and ambitions.
But, first, Halloween. Are you wondering what is IN this year? Where to go, how to mask, and how to party? Halloween is more than a fun event – it is when your dreams become a reality, and you can be the superhero you always idolized or the villain you transform into your wildest and darkest desires.
Halloween will be big this 2019. To get ready, here is a simple guide that guarantees you a crazy Halloween Night and with a bit of luck, new love interest.
Visit the Festival of the Dead
A month full of horrific events in the spirit of Halloween takes place in Salem, Massachusetts, from 1-31 October. This year, events like “Portals to the Spirit World,” a Halloween Ball and psychic readings are part of the activities planned for every Halloween enthusiast who wants to have the time of their life partying and meeting other lovers of Halloween too.
Be Part of Hollywood’s Halloween
The night of Halloween, October 31 is when all the magic happens in Santa Monica Boulevards in West Hollywood in California. It is the world’s largest street Halloween street party, and there is a lot of costume contests, drinks, live music and the sight of some very famous A-listers who appear on the Boulevard. Half a million people attend the street party, and there you can meet Latin women, Chinese, European and women from the rest of the world. Who knows, that might be your lucky night and fall in love too!
The Ultimate Halloween Experience
If you want to be part of it, head to New Orleans, Louisiana, on October 19. The festival’s name is Krewe of Boo, and it embodies the spirits of Halloween and Mardi Gras. There is a Zombie Run, where contestants are wearing costumes, and it officially starts the day. Later on, beginning at dusk, the main event is taking the focal point – the parade that has lavish floats and freaky costumes that represent the infamous, a bit mystical but completely theatrical flair of New Orleans.
Feel the Light from the Jack-O Lanterns
Chicago Calling! Experience the light and warmth of a 1000 carved Jacko-o lanterns at the Chicago Botanic Garden on 16-20 October and 23-27 October this year. The pumpkins are simply out-of-this-world, and it is stated that some of the artists spend even 15 hours on carving one pumpkin. Go with friends, and underneath all the spookiness, you might find it a tad romantic if you meet a girl you like.
Sleepy Hollow, Not so Sleepy New York
Finally, New York! Throughout October, you can have the time of your life at the Sleepy Hollow in New York where you can enjoy cemetery tours, parades, haunted houses, performances and all kinds of Halloween activities if you are a Halloween thrill seeker. After all, it is the Headless horseman’s hometown. You can even meet the girl of your spooky dreams, which already has a common thing with you- the love for Halloween!
