UPDATE: Check out our 2013 Kids Halloween Party page!
Halloween is growing in popularity in Buenos Aires, but it still has not caught on anywhere near to what it has in the States. While adult-themed costume parties are popular here, events for kids are sorely lacking. Kids in some of the suburbs and gated communities around Buenos Aires do dress up and go trick-or-treating and they often get dressed up for school, but in Capital you’ll have a hard time finding much for them to do.
Well, don’t let your little ones feel left out. We’re helping to organize a Halloween party for kids! It will be on Wednesday, October 31 at 6pm in a Palermo park. The plan is to let parents create little “stations” to hand out candy to our little trick or treaters. Then they can have a little parade around the park (which is enclosed). After they can play on the playground. That’s it.
What you need to do:
- Email [email protected] to RSVP and let us know how many of you will be there
- Dress the kids up.
- Please bring a bag of candy (or stickers, treats, whatever) to share. We have no idea how many kid might come, but try to have enough for at least 20-30 kids, just in case. We’ll try to send an estimate count on Halloween day.
- A bag or container for the candy your kids collect.
We’ll send you an email confirming all the specifics. Hope to see you there!
(Very odd how a few short years ago I was figuring out which party had the longest open bar at the best price for Halloween. How times change… Well, at least I won’t have to worry about a hangover after this year’s Halloween festivities. Well, maybe just a headache from screaming kids…)
