Halloween 2016 in Ibiza

For an island so synonymous with parties you wouldn’t expect the residents of Ibiza to let Halloween slip by without a party or two. An excuse for a shindig is never required in Ibiza, but when you combine Halloween with the last official day of summer, the end of the working summer for most residents…and the fact that the 1st November is a national holiday (Al Saints Day a Catholic celebration for the family that remembers the relatives that have passed), then Halloween is the perfect opportunity for one last swansong of the summer before the locals hunker down for winter.

12th October - Hispanity Day

12th October is a Hispanity Day (“Dia La Hispanidad” or “Fiesta Nacional de Espana”); a public holiday that is celebrated throughout Spain and in other countries in the World. The reason - well it is to celebrate the arrival in 1492 of Christopher Columbus arriving in The Americas. Yes yes Christopher Columbus was an Italian but was hired by the Spanish Catholics Monarchs to colonise The Americas which today is the Spanish speaking Caribbean including Cuba, Hispanola, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico & Haiti, and paved the way for most of South America, now known as Latin America to be Spanish speaking.
In Ibiza there are not too many events that are helps to celebrate, instead the weather should still be good enough to enjoy some late summer sun. You can expect many shops to be closed as well as some restaurants in the villages & in Ibiza Town.. but there will still be plenty of places open in the resorts and in Ibiza Town.
