NERJA by KRISS on 02 november 2015

Close to Nerja, Malaga south of Spain is the little village of Maro.
I can strike by the few houses that actually have a moroccan architecture but also because of the Maroween feast for Halloween.

Besides the play on words I think it does join together the traditional local feast with the more americanized Halloween we know.
As a result, people seem to be taking Halloween very seriously and families come together dressed up on the same theme, with very elaborate costumes ! I was really impressed.

The village is very well decorated as well and it really feels like Halloween in an american movie except we are in Spain and I am not too sure about the whole trick or treat thing here.
The kids were disappointed on that !

As regards to the feast, it lacks a few things to be perfect and help people enjoy themselves at their fullest.
The village was full of people, not one parking space to be found, streets packed full so a few hundreds (in tenth) for sure.

Besides the restaurants and pubs who seemed to have invested themselves seriously in the decoration for the latter, the only drinking and dining points were :

The natural sugar cane mojito guys, which is 3 people working.
A hot chestnuts point with a queue almost the size of the main street.

Come on guys, this is not serious, people are not all going to eat in and street options would have been very welcome.
Then there are a few artisanal market stands and stalls with many items ranging from jewelry to home decoration, incense, I would say the usual stuff you find on a market.

So that was the Maroween for us, a place to go have a look and spend an hour with the kids to have a look around but it could definitely do so much better !
