5 program tips if you spend Halloween in Budapest this year
Posted by Mia Balogh · Oct 22, 2017

31 October is a Tuesday this year but it’s even better because you can start the Halloween fun and Trick or Treating on the previous weekend already. Let us show you where. 

1, Ráday Street Trick or Treat

You can feel like being in the US on 28 October, if you go for a walk to Ráday Street, because you will see kids in creepy (and obviously cute) costumes with their families Trick or Treating at the restaurants over there. They can also leave their own jack o'lantern on the terrace of one of the restaurants so the street will be beautifully enlightened for the night.

When and where: the fun begins on 28 October after 4 pm in Ráday Street

2, Budapest Pumpkin Lantern Festival

Would you like to participate at a great program, where you can see and photograph extraordinary jack o'lanterns and also help a good cause? If yes, visit Heroes’ Square on 28 October. Bring 1-3 cans of non-perishable food and don’t forget your own jack o'lantern.

When and where: Heroes’ Square, 28 October from 7 to 9 pm.

3, International Halloween Festival

Expect the hottest Halloween location of Budapest filled with the most international crowd of the city, the best cocktails, cold beers, superstar DJs and a group of paparazzi photographers lined up to take the best pictures of you. ;) Sounds fun? Then don’t miss this crazy ‘festival’!

When and where: Liget Club, on 27 October from 10 pm

4, ’A little party never killed nobody’

If you would like to get some more party tips, we are eager to help you: most of the clubs and restaurants are organizing something special for Halloween or for the previous weekend so we could offer plenty of Halloween parties but let us offer only two programs, both for 31 October. For superhero fans ‘Marvel Halloween’ in Kuplung is a must, just like the Where is Cooper (Alice Cooper tribute band) concert for hard rock fans in Hard Rock Café.

5, Stranger Things marathon

Are you a fan of good TV series and creepy things? Then you must have seen Netflix’s 2016 hit ‘Stranger Things’. The first season was absolutely awesome, and since the premiere of the second season is already here, actually happening on 27 October, we can’t imagine any better line up for Halloween this year than watching the first season again. Invite your friends to join you, and let’s go to the upside down again.

Check out the trailer for season two, if you haven’t seen it yet:
