In Pictures: Hearts on Fire at Shockholm

The Shockholm Halloween Parade was held at Medborgarplatsen this year (very much hoping for a return to Kungsträdgården next year) and the rain put a bit of damper on the celebrations, but the festivities went on with the Kostume Kontest and the parade itself, as well as some show numbers. As always, the event gave good vibes of happiness and hope, but what else would you expect with the burning hearts of the organisers.

Here are some of our favorite pictures from Shockhom 2022.
