It’s that time of the year when pumpkins are getting to be the stars of the market and Halloween decorations suddenly appear in many stores in Bordeaux. Usually, at the beginning of October, I begin scouting for Halloween events and I must admit that since Covid started there aren’t that many of them in our region but I was still able to find a few fun options for kids to put on their costumes and enjoy different Halloween activities. I also included a fun party for adults so don’t close the article yet if you don’t have kids 🙂 Here’s a list of Halloween events taking place in the Bordeaux region (and some in Dordogne) in 2021.
