Blogger Miss W prepares for Halloween in Ibiza.
This is a WARNING! October 31 is Halloween and it is rumoured that from 3.30pm the Zombies of Babylon Beach and Kids In Ibiza will have an insatiable appetite for children of all ages.
Before devouring the little creatures the Zombies and their ghoulish cohorts will judge your pumpkin carving skills, create crafty skeletons, bob for apples, paint their faces, bake frightening cookies, dance to ghostly disco tracks and various other forms of tortuous Halloween fun.
The Zombies will only be frightened into submission by the 4pm arrival of their master (a very special guest) Pirate when he comes on his stinky, sinky, smoky sail boat and lands at Babylon Beach to hypnotise both young and old with his sneaky Halloween tricks and treats.
A band of devilish and devious dancers will delight and dazzle before the children are fed a meal of wormy pizza and frog leg pasta after which they will watch a lovely, kid-friendly film while their pre-teen and teen counterparts shake their bony bodies in the Disco Of Doom….mwaaaa ah ah ah ahhhhhh….
Parents will not get off lightly. Forced to abandon your children to the clutching arms of the Zombies you will then be coerced to take a seat in the Chiringuito and drink, eat, chat and be scary with one another while no-one will hear your children scream (with delight, that is).
Babylon Beach Halloween starts at 3.30pm on Thursday October 31. Entry is €5 per child. Children’s menu available. The event is separated into age appropriate sections with craft and games, dinner and a movie for the under 10s from 6pm while teens and pre-teens can enjoy their own activities from 6.00pm when it all gets a little scarier.
Prizes for the best Halloween Costumes with special guest judge. Bring your carved pumpkin along and Babylon will give a cash prize for the best one.
The original, biggest and most legendary fright night fiesta in Ibiza, on Thursday October 31, 2013 be prepared to witness the transformation of Bambuddha into a weird underworld where for the 15th year the Black Sheep Tribe and night creatures of Ibiza meet to close the summer season in the most awesome way.
The Tantra Cocktail Palace will be ready to shake a terrifying selection of crucifying, magic cocktails. Very special guests and resident DJs will be spinning devastating, wicked sounds for all weirdos, who just need to let loose.
The official dinner is already fully booked. To join the party from 10pm, invitations available at reception. Entrance to The Black Sheep Tribe Underworld by dresscode, reservation and invitation only.
Organised by trio of Italianas Daniela Natale, Luana Biondi and Rouge Le Dangerouge, all familiar faces on the Ibiza scene, Once Upon a Time is the new market of choice round these parts, perhaps because it turns the regular notion of ‘market’ right on its head, presenting instead an absolute melting pot of creativity- a mixture of young designers, vintage vendors, street artists, theatrical performers, illustrators, DJs and Ibiza’s coolest hepcats, all milling around the grounds of the BHS and creating an Ibiza shopping experience with a major difference… and this time with fright night approaching, it takes on a Halloween approach!
Starting at 10am, Boutique Hostal Salinas undergoes a time-travelling transformation that every vintage lover worth her salt would surely die with her leg in the air to attend. Providing the Shopping Soundtrack, DJ Daisy Heartbreaker is on hand playing a selection of her finest vintage vinyls- tunes from the past and the present to help ease you into Halloween shopping mode.
The mother of all Ibiza Halloween parties is back with a scary vengeance in 2011, as Bambuddha Grove is transformed into a weird underworld where Black Sheep Tribe and the night creatures of Ibiza meet at the annual Fetish Halloween Dinner Ball. The dress code? Fetish, depraved, sexual and religious. The feast? A three-course menu for 45€. The music? Devastating wicked sounds for weirdos by special guests and resident DJs. The rules? By invitation and dress code only, and the gates into hell close at 1am sharp! Scared yet? You should be!
Throwing open its gates especially for this spooky occasion, Aura once again host their annual crazy and colourful Halloween party, complete with scary décor, scarily talented make-up artists to help you perfect your look and of course, creepy cocktails to help ease those nervous jitters. Oh… and did we mention they’ve got a string of surprises in store? Don’t turn your back for a second!
Halloween Creatures and Dead Rockstars? Sounds like Rock Nights are back in the house at Pacha Ibiza, with their winter opening party falling on the spookiest night of the year. Watch as the club and its dancers take on ghoulish proportions, to the sounds of DJs Colin Peters, Lurbe & Hosen from the witching hour of midnight through til dawn… This is one Halloween party that’s guaranteed to ROCK!
When it comes to fancy dress in Ibiza, you can’t beat the famous Foc I Fum performance troupe (think Space closing, stilts and face paint!), so it stands to reason that their Halloween party at Somiart will be next level in the costume department! Book yourself a table to check it out for yourself, with a special set menu for just 35€ per person.
Costumes at the ready! Joining the string of San Juan ‘restaurant road’ establishments hosting Halloween soirees this year is Nagai. They’ll be kicking off at the early hour of 4pm, starting with a kids corner and including a make-up artist for those spooky special effects, followed by a surprise DJ line-up and more, in collaboration with Fantasia and Rewind.
Hip Vara de Rey meeting point La Cava launches its new winter concept just in time to coincide with Halloween… even more reason to celebrate! Get dressed up in your spookiest costume and head to the cosy haven to try the new Trio Tapa plates, check out the renovations, try the new wine and cocktail list, warm up with hot chocolate or hearty soups – the perfect place to meet your crew and start your evening of trick or treating adventures!
