Halloween is becoming more and more popular in Mazatlán every year. It is celebrated on October 31st every year.
NOTE that halloween is different than Day of the Dead which is celebrated the following day(Nov 1) in Mazatlán.
Some children do dress up and go trick or treating in the Golden Zone in the El Cid, Gaviotas, El Dorado and Lomas neighbourhoods.
We aren't aware of any haunted houses in Mazatlán. Note to Mazatlán entrepeneurs...this would be a good business venture!
There was one halloween costume store that set up temporarily in 2017 in the Golden Zone on Avenida Camaron Sabalo, across the street from the Hotel Royal Villas. It is unknown if this store will set up again in 2018. If you will be in Mazatlán for Halloween, we recommend that you buy your costume in your home city for the largest selection, but know that you may be able to buy a costume in Mazatlán. Also, be aware that it is still hot in Mazatlan on October 31 so we don't recommend costumes that have a full mask.
We are not aware of any costume rental stores in Mazatlán. If you know of any, please let us know so that we can post the information here!
Some of the nightclubs and restaurants in Mazatlán will have halloween parties. We will attempt to list the places that we find that are having halloween parties.
If you do go out for Halloween you should see some fantastic, mainly homemade, costumes!
