HALLOWEEN IN NERJA

PREVIOUS / NEXT

NERJA by KRISS on 07 november 2016

Last year, we lived on Nerja’s outskirts and since we had heard of Maroween in the little village of Maro, we only went there and didn’t check what Nerja was like on Halloween.
This year however, we are in central Nerja and our shop being very central that gave me a taste of the atmosphere first hand.
Later, the kids still wanted to go to Maro so I will tell you our impressions.

NERJA

All afternoon, parents with young children walked the streets for trick or treat.
Some parents were disguised, all kids were.
It’s funny how Halloween has become a thing here in Spain or elsewhere where it was barely known a couple of decades ago.
I was in the shop when I suddenly heard drums and crowds gathering, I quickly grabbed my camera and shot without noticing my girls were in the crowd.
Later, kids were throwing eggs at each other, a more traditional way of celebrating the 31st of October in Nerja.
All in all, there were lots of people and the atmosphere was good and joyful.

MARO

So I closed the shop, rushed home, got some fake blood around my neck, brushed my beard as a madman and we drove to Maro.
We miraculously found a parking spot despite the many many cars everywhere.
I was expecting the party to be on.
But once out of the car, only a few crowds now and then, not much happening on the streets, everything seemed dead and we only stayed for a drink and then headed back home.

So, I don’t know if we arrived too early or where everyone was but it certainly was a lot better in Nerja than it was in Maro, period.
