Here is a small directory of activities organized by our merchants to experience your best Well’oween! Candy, costume parties, thrills and special treats will be on the menu for the weekend of October 29 and 30.
For sugar bugs, nothing better than a good old candy hunt on the Well! Several shops will distribute it to young and old in costumes on the evening of the 31st. The Librairie de Verdun, Maltéhops, Benelux, and many others will be waiting for you and will be ready for your trick or treating!
The Maltéhops gang can’t wait to make you shiver: smoke machine, horror movie music, costumes and sweets will be on display in their beautifully decorated shop. It’s worth the detour!
On Saturday, October 29, Studio Tre Punti will welcome young princes, princesses, wizards and everyone else from 4 to 9 years old for La danse des montres, an incredible Halloween evening.
This activity invites kids to explore movement by creating a choreography in the image of this celebration where magic, horror and fantasy come together. Costumes and music, whether bizarre or catchy, will be there to allow us to celebrate the Halloween party together and in a fun way. And who knows… a little surprise may be waiting for the children before returning home! 🕸️😈👻🎃
The little monsters will be expected at 5:30 p.m. for 2 hours of fun. A thematic meal will also be served before returning home, full of energy to tell you about their beautiful evening!
For all the details and to register, it’s here!

As we said, there’s something for everyone on the Well!
To party, two establishments organize costume parties with totally different atmospheres, but both equally cool. On Friday evening, the Bar Palco organizes an evening with the theme “prohibition” with a live jazz and swing band from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. which will be followed by a DJ set until the wee hours!
Get out your twenties look: put on your bow ties and your feathers and come and discover the new signature cocktail menu for the winter!

Friday, October 28, from 8 p.m.
And the next day, Saturday night, the Benelux will turn into a prom and step back two decades with its Prom Night 2001 themed party. You can count on DJ Janis and drag queen Ciatha Night to ignite your evening! And since a Halloween party is never quite complete without a costume contest, the person with the best costume will be crowned prom queen or king and win a nice cash prize. It’s time to dig up your old ballgown and stock up on nostalgia, good beer and candy!
