Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (Oct 30 - Nov 1)

As things are bound to get weird, let us rejoice that the most absurd, debaucherous and quirky time of the year is finally upon us: HALLOWEEN. As you don your wackiest attire, rest assured that there are a lot of options to choose from this weeekend: whether it be a massive costume party at the Universidad Católica, late-night bike rides in Maipu, or a surprising amount of metal concerts. There´s only one thing that these events have in common: wear a costume!

Remember every Friday we'll post our picks for the weekend and please check this space often as we may update it with changes and/or new events that pop up. Enjoy!
