Halloween fever hits the peninsula this weekend, and there’s plenty of things going on if you’re in the spirit. Most Halloween parties coincide with the big fireworks festival this Saturday, so expect big crowds around Gwangalli, and tons of people from Kyungsung University to Haeundae walking the streets. Public transportation will also be packed, so plan accordingly to get to your destination on time, as taxis may be sparse from 6 p.m. to midnight.

The Gwangalli Beach Road will also be closed to traffic in the early afternoon, so traffic in the area will be very congested.

If you are planning on heading out this weekend, here are some places that have events planned as of now. Check back during the week for the latest updates on what’s happening around the city.
