GET READY, SHOCKHOLM HALLOWEEN PARADE & EVENTS 2014 is coming!
JOIN SCANDINAVIA’S LARGEST HALLOWEEN PARADE LOR / SAT Nov 1 16:30 AT KUNGSTRÄDGÅRDEN!
SHOCKHOLM 2014 is already shaping up to be the biggest and best ever, and, it’s still early in the process! With over 3 million media impressions won last year, we are on our way to further establishing and growing what has already become a loved tradition, Shockholm, Scandinavia’s Largest Halloween Parade & Events! So, what’s in store for this year? For the first time ever, we present SHOCKHOLM : PARK, three days of fun, workshops (costume, mask, puppet & music) and activities in Kungsträdgården (Oct 30, 31 and Nov 1). Our SHOCKHOLM BITES! themed food initiative was a big success last year, and, we have some very exciting news coming up on that soon. It will again be featured in our SHOCKHOLM : EXHIBITION which, like Bites!, will run ten days, Oct 23 – Nov 2, and will now be at the legendary Hallwyllska Museum just a few blocks from Kungsträdgården – we have an incredible list of art and artists on board this year. And the SHOCKHOLM HALLOWEEN PARADE crowns it all. Wait until you see what we have in store! Kicking off around 15:30 at Kungsträdgården on Saturday November 1 with the best ever set of prizes for our Best Costume Awards (see below), you will not want to miss a minute of the great fun.

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR MAKING SHOCKHOLM 2013 A HUGE SUCCESS!
We had double the attendees as last year (nearly 2,500 this year), double the entertainment, an exhibition at the City Museum Which was packed, Sweden’s Largest Fishing Pond, fueled with 1,000 kilos of Karamellkungen candy, had a far more underdeveloped roster of talent (Massive thanks to performers Sire Shockington, King Caspian, Barokoko, Anna Jois, and MC David Eriksson as shocky!), Sponge Bob & Patrick, torches, a Mummy Mobile, a happy Cooperation with Project Playground & Maskrosbarn and of course YOU! All the happy faces and comments make this very worth it, and, we look forward to seeing you again at Shock Holm 2014!
