The Halloween is an annual holiday observed on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints’ Day, but is today largely a secular celebration.
Common Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, carving jack-o’-lanterns, ghost tours, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, committing pranks, telling ghost stories or other frightening tales, watching horror films, or in our case, having the scariest run of the year!!
Welcome to the Beijing HHH’s HALLOWEEN RUN 2010!!
This Sunday all kind of ghosts, witches, goblins and more will take the streets of Beijing! Join us in this fantastic run and be ready for our costume competition where our RAs will either reward you for your costume or punish you for the lack of it!!
Where to buy a costume?
There is a triple-sized stall on the first floor of the NEW Pearl Market, which is directly behind the (old) Pearl Market (HongQiao). If you need help finding it, go into the Toy Market (Wanju Shichang) next to HongQiao and ask the person in the small costume stall immediately to your left as you enter. They are the proprietors for the other one as well. Tell them you want a bigger selection and if they can take you to the other stall. They have tons more stuff than at Yashow.
