Halloween is a celebration celebrated pretty much all over the world. But it is special in London. They start the preparation way too early and this is evident when I went to London recently and exhibited a parade in Leicester Square. London is famous for very reasons and Halloween is also one of them. There are many clubs, pubs and restaurants, which organise Halloween parties. Parties go on from 31st night to 1st night. You can also participate in best costume competitions as well around the town.
While walking around on 11th October in Leicester square I stumbled on this gathering of the best Halloween costumer parade. And It was pretty amazing looking at the people dressed in so many weird and scary makeups and dresses. The best part was it, was all enjoyable, people were drinking, laughing and having a good time. Some people were even making the policeman laugh and took the selfie with them. I must say this, it was not a warm day at all, but there were brave people out there who were up and spirited wearing wicked and scary dresses and makeup entertaining visitors and tourists. It was worth the visit, and I am sure if you go on to London on the Halloween night you will have great time. Make sure you wear some thing out of the box, you will get some appreciation also there are best costume competitions as well on the 31st night. Which is worth the effort to get dressed, filthy and very scary.
Some of the best places in town for the Halloween night are:
