Creepy Ways To Celebrate Halloween In Paris

Trick or treat! Halloween is celebrated every year on 31st October and is believed to be the one night of the year when ghosts, witches and fairies are particularly active. It has become the season for little ghosts and ghouls to wear a spooky costume and go from house to house (adult supervised!) in search of sweets and treats. Many decorate their homes with spiders, fake blood, and pumpkin lanterns.

If you are looking for spooktacular ways to celebrate with your little pumpkins, why not trial our suggestions, if you dare:

Halloween Festival at Disneyland Paris: Every autumn, Disneyland Paris celebrates Halloween between 1st October and 1st November. Your little ghouls can become spellbound visiting the haunted village of Disney. They will have a scream of a time as they attend the spookiest party, which offers daily shows, sweets, souvenir photos, along with meeting the (normally adorable) Mickey, Minnie or Donald in their eerie costumes.  On October 31, Disney will hold a Halloween party with terror-ific street entertainment, shows and celebrations. More details can be found here.

Halloween night at the Stade de France: For football fans who also don't mind a little scare, the Stade de France in the Paris suburbs will host a haunted house event for Halloween. Most of the action will be in the behind the scenes areas usually not open to the public.  There will also be face painting, workshops, trick or treating and some arts and crafts projects for kids. As part of the visit you'll get to see the players' locker rooms, but they will have undergone a "surprise" transformation. The fair is on from October 30th-November 3rd. Tickets are available online.

Haunted House at the Manoir de Paris: Paris has a real haunted house called Le Manoir de Paris and - safe to say - it really is very scary! If there's one place in the capital that had to celebrate the festival of horror, the Manoir de Paris is it, dedicated to the most frightening Parisian legends.  Every year the Manor of Paris goes into Halloween mode, and this year is no exception. From 14 OCtober to 12 November you can visit and see a live horror show with over 100 actors. Prepare yourself for an intense, interactive experience, with spectacular innovations. Caution, however, attractions for Halloween are for over 12 years because some monsters are very scary! It's open every day through Halloween at 18 Rue du Paradis in the 10th arrondissement. Reserve tickets online to avoid long lines, and find out more information here.

Halloween at the Château de Thoiry: At the Chateau de Thoiry the atmosphere will be much quieter and more intimate than Disney or at Manoir de Paris. On Halloween night, the castle and its guest will witness a strange spectacle with the ancient inhabitants of the castle coming to life and roaming the gardens..! Guided by the immortal guardians of the castle, it will take a lot of courage for young visitors to overcome this journey and go unscathed. Strange and frightening encounters may happen... Your children will gorge on spiders and beetles and pass tests imposed by the various monsters and ghosts of the castle.

It really doesn't get much scarier than these spooky ways to spend Halloween in Paris!
