It’s that brilliant time of year again: Halloween! And if you’re going to be in Taipei for it, consider yourself lucky because Halloween in Taipei is damn good.
I know for a fact it’s been on a lot of people’s minds because my Halloween article from last year has been my most read and searched for article lately.

Please note: The above list is a compilation of extracts from each respective event posted on Facebook. (Whereas last year I wrote the event descriptions myself). For further details and to clarify final details, please refer to the given Facebook pages. I’m updating this myself manually in my spare time, and am not getting any form of compensation doing so, so please be patient. Taipei venues announce their events very sporadically, so it’s hard to keep track. What’s more, even when they do make an event, often the information given is not complete/sparce.
