Get ready for the marauding gangs of hyperactive children dressed as vampires, mummies and various other members of the Undead that we have come to expect for Halloween.

Even the weather has got in on the act, with thunderstorms forecast and the official Halloween activities in San Pedro and Marbella- including the parade and Passage of Terror, will now take place on Friday November 2. See

for more details.


But if you do feel like getting your Halloween freak on, you might want to check out the following.

The following night, November 3, Cuban band Habana N Talla will be playing their great mix of salsa, merengue, bachata and kizomba. At 9pm dance teacher Yas is offering a Bachata workshop to give you all the moves you need to hit the dance floor from 10pm to 2am. The best costumes can win prizes and special offers, so go all out this Halloween weekend. The person in the best costume will win a dinner for two and everyone wearing a costume will enjoy a free welcome drink.

Personally I have decided not to partake in the annual fright fest this year. After all, I live in Marbella where I have to deal with blood suckers, ghouls, freaks, the criminaly insane and the undead on a daily basis…
