- The Department of Culture presents its programme for October 31st with a façade decoration competition and activities at the multi-purpose centre
San Fulgencio is getting ready to celebrate Halloween in style. As an introduction, residents can participate until October 27th in a contest to decorate facades, balconies and doors with Halloween decorations. “With this new activity, we want to involve the public and add atmosphere during the days leading up to the festival,” said the Councillor for Culture, Sara Nolasco. Those interested can participate by sending photographs of their decorated houses by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, opting for a first prize of 300 euros, a second prize of 200 euros and a third prize of 100 euros, to be awarded during the Halloween party scheduled for Tuesday 31. Nolasco has outlined the events that will take place, “in which we will have a full programme of free activities for all audiences that will take place in the multipurpose hall in Juan Carlos Herrero street in the town centre, starting at 8:00pm”.
The evening will feature children’s entertainment and hot chocolate give away for the little ones, after the costume parade for all ages, which will begin in Rojales street at 8:30pm. There will also be an impressive ‘Passage of Terror’, which will run continuously until midnight, “as well as the escape room activity ‘El Desván’ (‘The attic’), whose creators have won first prize in the Escape Room Awards,” said the councillor. The escape room is aimed at participants over the age of 12, who will have to sign up via the website www.halloweensanfulgencio.es. The councillor pointed out that there will also be a ‘sobaquillo dinner’ without a bar, for which a table must be booked by calling 647310732, including an orchestra and a musical performance until the early hours of the morning.
Nolasco has indicated that, with the aim of facilitating and achieving as much participation as possible, “the Council will provide attendees with a free bus service, which will connect the town centre with the urbanisation area”. The buses will depart from the Tourist Office at the urbanisation, in Amsterdam street, at 8:00pm, 9:00pm and 10:30pm; while the return times from the multi-purpose centre will be at 10:00pm, 12:00pm and 2:00am. The councillor also invited the whole town, “as well as residents of nearby towns, to come along and take part in this event for a night of fright, but also full of music and fun, which is not to be missed”.
