Are you ready for a frightfully fun week of Halloween events in #lovecapetown, friends? I sure am!

So much so, that I’ve rounded up my top scary events for you. Now, before some of you get all culturally correct on me and say that Old Hallow’s Eve is not a South African celebration, let me say that dressing up in spooky costumes and having a good time is a universal activity and one the Mother City fully intends to enjoy.

From ghoulish zombie walks to medieval theatrical marathons and waking-the-dead dance parties  there is plenty  happening to scare you silly in our hometown this week so join me at the following heart-stopping events:
