Balanga to stage unique Halloween celebration

    BALANGA CITY, Bataan – Scarecrows, black and white crosses, tombstone of saints on Tuesday began lining-up the perimeter of the Plaza Mayor de Balanga in preparation for the celebration of Halloween.

    The scarecrows hang on lamp posts standing on clay pots or balanga near palm trees beside the plaza, which is still undergoing finishing touches.

    d the frontage of the cityhall and the two center islands in the commercial district. Tombstones of saints near black and white crosses seemed to create an eerie feeling.

    The tombstones and black and white crosses and the signboard of a crematory and memorial park at a low building nearby seemed to blend with each other.

    Not far from the plaza is the elegant St. Joseph Cathedral with life-size statue of saints lining the frontage.

    Organizers of the Halloween project said on October 30 – 31, seven horror booths of various schools and “trick or treat” will also be presented in the plaza.
