Scared yet? You should be, because Malta’s got a whole night of truly horrific events planned for every point on the scary spectrum. Where will you be?
October 31st is undeniably one of Malta’s biggest and newest celebrations. Second to St Paddy’s and also of Irish origin, the night is said to usher in an air allowing the spirits long gone to roam once more.
Except in 2019 the only spirits you’ll find around are the ones above 12% (no, Karen, red wine isn’t scary).
1. Mad Hatter’s Halloween Weekender, Msida
The Irish sure do know how to party – just look at St Patrick’s Day. If you thought Halloween couldn’t get any better, you thought wrong, because The Hatter pub in Msida is celebrating the scary season for the entire weekend. From Halloween through to All Saints and All Souls, these guys are making sure no one misses out on the chance to meet some spirits this weekend.
2. Down the Rabbit Hole’s Halloween Bash
The sister pub of The Hatter, this Alice In Wonderland-themed pub will lift your spirits with free shots for those in fancy dress and a number of their special cocktails and fine craft beers. After last year’s smashing Monster Mash, Alice, The Cheshire Cat and Rabbit are inviting you all down the hole for a night of boo(!)s and booze – and best dressed will win, well, something. We can’t spoil all the secrets.
3. Extravaganza Halloween at Club TwentyTwo!
Enter if you dare… The 22nd floor of Portomaso Tower will be transformed into a hellish and blood-curdling circus for the day of the dead.
4. Halloween @ Native Bar
Malta’s favourite Latin bar isn’t just giving us a bloodbath of booze on Halloween night – they’re planning on celebrating the whole weekend in spooky style, too!
5. Min Hi? | Bormla
Everyone saw those creepy masked doll-smashers pop up somewhere around Malta a few weeks back. Could it have anything to do with this eerie theatre production that opens on Halloween night?
You’ll find a lot more than just scary stories if you take a stroll down Bisazza Street on Halloween. There’s a whole host of events on the spread, a number of giveaways and some frighteningly awesome deals in some of your favourite high-street stores!
7. Paola Halloween Fest
In aid of Puttinu Cares, Paola’s streets will welcome trick-or-treaters from all over Malta with free entertainment and fun and games for all the family. There’s even rumours of a super scary parade taking place throughout the night…
8. Halloween at Esplora
Watch as flames spark, dance and change colour during this wonderful science show put together especially for Halloween night. Play with some creepy-crawlies in Esplora’s bug room or learn the explosive secrets behind our origin…
