Shockholm 2019 Highlights

Scandinavia’s largest Halloween event, the Shockholm parade took place for the 9th time now and brought out thousands of people joining in on the ghoulish fun.

Creative performances took place on the stage at Kungsträdgården, including Bollywood dance, live music and acrobatics. After that the crowds joined in a world-first, when the parade actually split in two in front of the Royal Castle to take the Gamla Stan route in opposite directions.

Here is our visual Shockholm report including both video and pictures – so you can relive the fun if you were there, or see what you missed and make sure to come along next year!
