Halloween
India is celebrating Halloween by hosting several parties themed on a spooky experience.Reuters

Halloween in India is strictly a grown up affair. One would never find kids trick-or-treating in the country's bustling streets and even if they did, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to suggest that it will only lead to a long, solid scolding from the neighbourhood's not-so-friendly auntie.

Keeping this in mind, perhaps the only way one can have a safe and fun Halloween is by going to a club where most people have embraced their quirks. If you find yourself thinking along these lines, then there's list of parties in Bangalore where looking scary is acceptable.

Although Halloween falls on a Monday (October 31), several clubs are ushering the day during the weekend and here's a list of parties that will not fail you.
