Something very spooky is going on!

Which witch is which? Ghosts, mummies, zombies, vampires, and werewolves, together with wizards, other spooky characters from films or books took to the streets over the weekend to celebrate Halloween (31st October) in style.

Trick or treating has become very popular here, and the kids were out in force. On Friday evening a group of them were going around, with their moms and dads too, to all the stores in Grand Harbour asking the store owners for a “trick or treat.” But really it was just a great excuse to show off some really cool costumes. There were witches, princesses, a magician, a werewolf, a skeleton and ghost, just to name a few.

Darth Vader from Star Wars, while not strictly speaking a traditional spook, proved  a popular Halloween costume with kids and adults alike, and there was a little Darth Vader trick or treating at Grand Harbour on Friday and later on, a big Darth Vader visiting Margaritaville, which had a special Halloween party.

There was also a great Halloween bash at the Exchange bar in Harbour Place and at Treasure Island on Seven Mile Beach.

On Monday night the real Mecca for trick or treaters seemed to be Walkers Road, as moms and dads took their little princesses, witches, goblins, and purple bumble bees around knocking on the doors, asking the residents if they wanted a “trick or treat.”
