This Monday, October 31, witches, zombies and monsters have invaded towns and villages.
“Candy or bad luck!” The inhabitants of Cœur d’Hérault did not hesitate for a second! In front of the kids disguised – and their parents just as made up – as werewolves, witches, ghosts and other evil jokes who came to extract candy from them by handfuls, they offered the much-requested sweets so as not to end up in toads or bats. .
The Halloween party, which came from Anglo-Saxon countries, has taken root in our regions in recent years and the lantern tour was all the more easy as the temperatures were spring-like on Monday. The booms and other balls, which followed in the evening, entertained young and old. A little return to terrifying images.
We met them on every street corner, in the squares and in the alleys, in the gardens and in the corners, on the balconies and in the living rooms, ringing at the doors to ask for their due… There were more than a hundred of them … Big and small, they and also shes, vampires, zombies, werewolves, ghosts, witches and monsters… And to end their trip, they all met at the Entracte-Café.
In the hall of the cultural space with Halloween decor, you could see the pumpkins carved during the Saturday workshop, starting at 6 p.m. The children, dressed up and equipped, were ready to go on a candy hunt in the streets of the village. And, at 7:30 p.m., many Puéchabonais of all ages joined all this small world for a shared aperitif, to dance, and to taste the orange soup concocted by the Puecha’Pop team. The party is not over for the children: this Wednesday, November 2 at 4 p.m., they will be able to see the animated film “The Nightmare Before Christmas”.
At 5 p.m., before nightfall, strange characters, young and old, gathered on the Place d’Aubaygues, at the initiative of the associative café Le Pont. After snatching up all the sweets in the hamlet, the merry procession headed for Saint-Etienne-leHaut to continue to scare the inhabitants. Once night fell, they went back down to finish around a good soup and a disguised evening at the café.
All generations gathered for the Halloween ball organized by the Mozaïka centre. The village hall transformed into a haunted castle attracted a disguised and joyful crowd, who took part in the late evening competition for the most terrifying costume. Lucenzo, who was celebrating his birthday, was able to celebrate the event with his mother, Coralie, and his great-grandfather, Henri, and his friends.
The new team of the PEPS association organized its Halloween party on Monday evening at the municipal foyer, entirely decorated by volunteers. From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., young and old alike were able to enjoy dancing on the floor animated by DJ Benji, distribution of candies for all the children who paraded on the stage with their disguises, each more terrifying than the other. The children exhibited their most beautiful pumpkins on the steps of the foyer.
For a first, it was a great success for the municipal team of Brignac who offered an hour of immersive and cooperative play during a unique escape game. More than 60 participants, children and adults, were immersed in the heart of the intrigue, within the town hall itself, which strongly resembled a haunted house due to its decorations, thanks to the active participation of elected officials and ‘inhabitants.
At Mescladis, Charlène Gaurichon and her troupe of entertainers organized a Halloween dance party for CM1 and CM2. Charlène and Estelle told us that this party is as much for the parents as for the children! A way to fall back into childhood, to erase the difficult periods experienced recently. For the children, it is also a way of expressing themselves and of collecting sweets.
