  • A busy Halloween and All Saints' Day on the Costa

The Costa saw a lively week celebrating all of the autumnal events that come with the turn of the month.

Halloween united fun and terror in Malaga on Tuesday, especially in Churriana and in the central Soho district which had their traditional Noche en Negro.

Public spaces were transformed into terrifying areas where locals in costume enjoyed contests and face painting, among other events.

Other towns held special events for the night of the 31 October, which included costume contests and activities for children. Bars were open until the early hours of the morning for the night of the living dead.

The following day saw different celebrations remembering the dead in the province.

To mark All Saints' Day, thousands of people laid flowers at graves. Cemeteries all over Malaga were filled with colour and people spent time reflecting on happy memories with the people they had lost.

Marbella and San Pedro Alcántara celebrated the traditional Día del Tostón, a festive roasting of seasonal chestnuts.
