Because of movies such as Coco and The Book of Life, Filipinos have become more aware of Días De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a Mexican holiday that is often comparable to Filipinos’ celebration of All Saints’ Day. Ever since the release of the mentioned films, Day of the Dead became one of the most popular themes for Halloween parties. As a matter of fact, there are two Day of the Dead-themed parties in this list, and the first one would be El Dia De Los Muertos: A Spooky Monstercation.

Although set in Shangri-La Hotel’s Marquee Tent, this event make attendees feel like they’re in a creepy graveyard decorated with spooky candles and flowers. There would be live entertainment, exciting giveaways, fun activities, delicious box meals, a grand dessert buffet, and more for everyone in attendance. Families who will attend the event may also want to have a staycation, as the venue also offers room packages.

How to get there: Ride the MRT-3 then alight at the Shaw Boulevard Station. Exit the station facing EDSA Shangri-La Mall and SM Megamall. Shangri-La Hotel is just walking distance from the station.

Just like El Dia De Los Muertos, The Island Halloween Fiesta’s theme is also the Day of the Dead.

For fans of hip-hop, there would also be performances from Careless Music artists Nadine Lustre, James Reid, Curtismith, Sofia, Kingwaw, and Astrokidd.

Be sure to wear your best Day of the Dead costume to enter and get to win prizes.

For some, having a broken heart is worse than any ghost or monster. While both can make one stay up all night, a heartbreak haunts persistently and can last for quite a long time. For anyone who’s single but afraid to fall in love again or someone who just got their heart broken, this event is a way to let you vent and let out the pain.

With songs from I Belong to the Zoo and a sad songs-only open mic afterwards, there will surely be more feels than fears. And who knows? You might find your next “boo” at this event.

How to get there: Ride the LRT-2 and alight at the Anonas Station. Exit the station then head to St. Joseph Church. Ride a jeepney heading to City Hall or Fairview. Ask the driver to drop you off at SM Savemore-Sikatuna. Ride one of the tricycles there and ask the driver to take you to Jess and Pat’s. If you’re coming from EDSA, you can also ride a bus bound for Fairview. Get off at Philcoa and walk to the tricycle terminal near the Bank of Commerce. Ride a tricycle and ask the driver to take you to 63 Maginhawa, where Jess & Pat’s is located.


Tips for ticket purchasing and watching:

  • Only purchase from official ticket distributors for safer transactions.
  • Observe the rules and regulations of the venue.
  • If partying with a group, have a designated driver. If you’re driving, don’t drink alcoholic beverages.
  • Some Halloween parties and events might have cheaper entrance fees for people who come in costume, so dress up!
  • Have fun!
