Halloween 2021 in Pairi Daiza Featured

Between October 23 and November 7, 2021, Pairi Daiza will immerse its visitors in a Halloween atmosphere where young and old can enjoy themselves. A creative and wondrous Halloween, spotlighting the park's artists and legends. An original program of animations and spectacles illustrating the rituals of life and death.

Thousands of flowers, pounds of pumpkins, scarecrows, friendly ghosts, funny vampires, mischievous witches and witty skeletons. For 20 days and 19 nights, the Gardens of Pairi Daiza don their autumn attire. The Garden of the Worlds' more than 7,000 animals invite all mythical creatures and beautifully dressed visitors to stroll along the park's trails. A merry Halloween, which will make the park look even more enchanting and which, on 23 and 24 October and from 30 October to 7 November, will showcase the creations and achievements of 120 artists every day.
In total, Pairi Daiza proposes 52 animations or creative spaces for Halloween. Compared to the previous editions, that's 24 novelties! This rich and original program places particular emphasis on the creation with 12 original animations and unprecedented spectacles. A wish of the park come true, after two years of the corona crisis that has deprived the country of its artistic expression for too long.
The Halloween period will also be the time when the visitor can admire the volcanoes of the western lowland gorilla as they reawaken! Vibrations have been felt for several days now. Perhaps these volcanoes will become active again to reinforce the start of the festivities? Of course our animals are not disturbed.

Halloween in Pairi Daiza is also the opportunity for visitors to win dozens of subscriptions and entrance tickets to the park. From October 23, all visitors can continuously participate in five competitions.

large park. Giant scarecrows, living trees, a choir of ghost monks: they bring you choreographies and chants from the afterlife, as well as a traditional African dance, the dance of the coffin.
The 3 Jeannes, 2.5 meters high puppets and living dead in historical costume, bring the legend of the park to life. According to that legend, 800 corpses of noblemen rest on the Domain of Cambron, not far from the remains of the 300 monks buried in their garden, in open ground.
In the Oasis, the duo Biscotte and Brioche propose a musical and theatrical spectacle for young and old (accessible from 3 years).
The Pyronix company presents its new spectacle Ragnarok. These acrobats and jugglers will dazzle you with their fire control and their unprecedented pyrotechnic effects.

FAIRY VIDEO MAPPINGS

Every day from October 23 to November 7
The audiovisual video projections have become an integral part of Pairi Daiza's Halloween season. In addition to the two symbolic sites, namely the Tower of Cambron and the ruins of the Abbey, as well as the petting zoo, this year visitors can marvel at a wall of water rising from the lake (near the Izba). This new creation on the water is an unprecedented poetic mapping, entirely devoted to the monsters of the deep sea. It is without a doubt one of the creations in the park that you should not miss this fall!

CONCERTS AND ACROBATION
