Celebrate Día de los Muertos at The Royals
This Halloween, we are celebrating the festival of Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Celebrated in Mexico between 31st October and 2nd November, this festival is a chance to remember and honour deceased loved ones. It’s not a gloomy or scary occasion, rather it is a festive and colourful holiday celebrating the lives of those who have passed on.
In a celebration of this fabulous fiesta, The Royals are hosting a FREE kids event on Wednesday 27th October. Join Ryan and The Little Royalty team for loads of skele-fun activities. During Día de los Muertos, Mexicans take part in parades, often wearing colourful masks and carrying lanterns. Your little ones will learn to make their very own mex-cellent parade mask, cool costume and decorative lantern.
They’re need their parade mask and costume at the ready to join Southend’s very own Halloween Parade a few days later!
Southend Spooktacular Halloween Parade – Saturday 30th October 2021
Some frightfully good fun is in store for families and visitors this autumn when the first ever Southend Halloween Parade takes place on Saturday 30th October 2021.
Your children will also be excited to know that our favourite Little Royalty lions, Ryan and Rosy, will be making a special appearance in the parade and invite the Little Royalty members to come along and have a BOO-gie with them!
The parade is FREE to spectate and will feature exciting entries for the whole family including the world-renowned Spark! street theatre drummers, dance performances, a lighting spectacular and giant lit up puppets made by local artists. A stunning fireworks display – hosted by the Southend Business Improvement District (BID) – will close the evening.
Keep an eye out for Ryan, Rosy and the Little Royalty team in the parade and be sure to give us a big wave!
