A holiday that provokes a lot of discussion among us, but always attracts thousands of fans of the idea of being someone you’re not at least for a day. The streets of the city are filled with terrible monsters, sweet nurses and naughty ghosts that can play you a number. Why not look at it from the fun side and take advantage of another opportunity to relax and enjoy some time with your friends.
The team of the only digital guide under the hills selected for you a few interesting events and parties that are not to be missed and challenges you to take out the costume (it can be last year’s) from the wardrobe and have fun in the spookiest night of the year.
Bulgarian Halloween in Plovdiv
The air will tremble from the ringing of the Kukeri chans and Rhodope’s bagpipes of the Rhodopians bagpipe band.
Plovdiv is the only place which merges the two traditions.
All children, parents and guests of the city are invited to have fun!
Dress code: Halloween costume or Kuker mask or at least a bell in hand.
6 pm – Meeting point Roman Stadium
6:30 pm – Beginning of the procession to the fountain in front of the Municipality where every Kukeri group will show its play.

Face painting can be great fun for everyone. In just a few minutes you will embody your favorite characters, animals or other creatures, and turn the ordinary weekday into a magical experience! It is suitable for children as well as for anyone who wants to be attractive with a fun, elegant or scary painting.
Each painting will be done against donation! Everyone is welcome!

Trick and treat [at] Skaptobara
Trick and treat from Skaptobara if you’re brave enough:
1. Find a friend you trust. Unreservedly. Especially when you eat.
2. Come hungry. Especially when you have to eat.
3. Ask for the Trick and treat challenge. Especially if you will eat.
4. When you face the challenge, don’t swear, it is not a gentleman-like. Just beat it in less than 600 seconds (10 minutes if you don’t want to calculate it, we’re gentlemen like that) and you won’t have to pay.
12:50 pm – 10 pm
