The pumpkins are out, the spiderwebs are hung and excitement is in the air. Halloween is fast approaching and Itacaré is ready to trick or treat!
Globally, Halloween is a beloved holiday and a great excuse to act foolishly and child-like all over again. Although not yet well known in Brazil, Itacaré’s Language school, Easy2Speak, knows how it’s supposed to go down and throws the town’s favorite Halloween party every year.
Easy2Speak is a school where one can learn both English and Portuguese easy and fast. Katia Pitta, owner of Easy2 Speak, expects the party to be an even bigger success this year.
“Last year people came and had a great time! This party is unique for Itacaré. Most of the parties here are either reggae or traditional style” says Katia.
The two-day long party is divided into 3 parts so that everyone, regardless of age, can participate. On the 1st of November at 6.30 pm the party will be open for guests from 11 to 18 years old. There will be a walk through the haunted house followed by music and dancing.
The following day from 4 pm until 7 pm, doors will open for our youngest friends from the age of 4 to 7 years old. There will be activities appropriate for their age along with lots of candy, fun and games.
“In addition to live music, Halloween spirits and scary jelly-shots, there will be cool gifts to win, for example a spa day, dinner at a local restaurant, petrol coupons or free English courses” Katia says.
Last year the party was a big hit and people from all over town came and danced the night away in a Halloween-atmosphere. Are you ready to be frightened?
Dresscode: There will be a prize for best costume! If you don’t want to dress up, wear black and you should be fine.
