Halloween 2019 Playas del Coco Costa Rica
When you think of Halloween in a beach town you automatically think about a bunch of Facebook pictures of drunk adults going all out on their costumes, trying to outdo their friends for the best looking goblin, ghoul or ghost. Well our little slice of paradise in Playas del Coco is no different – We adults go ALL OUT.
But of course Halloween is really all about kids having fun with their families. You would be surprised how many kids there are in our area that celebrate Halloween. This year literally 100’s of kids and their families turned out for the 2nd Annual COCO CANDY CRAWL. Many thanks to Madison O’Bryan for arranging such a successful event. Instead of going home to home Trick or Treating like you did as a kid, Madison had the great idea to recruit all the local businesses along the main street in Playas del Coco to give out candy to all the costumed kids (and some adults too!) who came and asked nicely. Since most of the local business owners have kids and if not they certainly couldn’t resist welcoming hundreds of Trick or Treaters to their door, the event has become a resounding success. It works out perfect as all the candy stops are very close to each other and in open, public areas.
If filling themselves full of candy from every business in town wasn’t enough, the event culminated at Zi Lounge where all the kids got their chance to whack open a candy stuffed Piñata. It really is a sight to see already sugar jacked kids get into a melee on the floor going for every last bit of candy possible. Check out this video to see what we mean
You might look at the Weather Channel and see that it is showing rain every day in October. This might deter you from coming down during this time of year. Well all the locals know that in reality a typical October day the sun shines in the morning until 2-3 in the afternoon then it rains for an hour or 2 and might continue a light drizzle into the evening. Occasionally you get an all day rain or a real gully washer. this Halloween was no different. It started with a beautiful sunny day with clear skies as far as the eye can see with a very comfortable temperature in the upper 70’s (25 Celsius). Then a nice 30 minute gully washer followed by a light drizzle until around 6-6:30pm. Let me tell you a light drizzle when it is in the 70’s is definitely not going to stop anyone from coming out in force for some serious family fun. Check out some photos of just a few of the revelers.
Many thanks to all the businesses who participated in the Candy Crawl. It was truly a lot of fun and great to see all the families coming together as one great community.
