It’s an animation-rich weekend announced for Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October 2022in the metropolis of Lille (North). And for good reason, weekend falls in full during All Saints’ Day ! Here are some trip ideas spotted by the editors this week.

Fun events in shopping centers

During each school holiday period, the region’s shopping centers offer entertainment for the whole family. On All Saints Day you can look forward to:

Good deals to be had

In addition to the flea markets planned in the area for this weekend (here we list those from the north and there those from Pas-de-Calais), a great barter is announced this Saturday in Wazemmes, organized by the company Adopte une secondhand clothes. . A chance to wear clothes you no longer wear and find nuggets at the same time!

Outdoor entertainment and family games

These are the last times you can enjoy outdoor entertainment in the area. Outdoor activities are still open, in the citadel of Lille, but only for a few days. You can still visit the animals at Lille Zoo, have fun at the Cita Parc attractions – switched to Halloween mode this holiday – and try tree-climbing courses in the small grove adjacent to the ramparts.

Accro Lille also offers its last night session of the season, on Halloween night. You’ll be able to play acrobats in height… in disguise once night falls. An experience that promises to be unforgettable. Note that during this period many structures will go into “winter” mode. Find out about offers in your area!

If you prefer to stay inside, know that there are many leisure activities available in the metropolis: escape games and quizzes in Lille, but also Koezio and its numerous activities in Villeneuve-d’Ascq or even the Prison Island in Lesquin… Let’s not forget the Climbing Walls of Arkos , trampolines or even classic lasergames and bowling alleys…

Celebrate with friends!

If Halloween doesn’t officially happen until Monday, October 31st, there will be some fun already this weekend. For example, a park in Lesquin will host a “scary fiesta” for teenagers on Saturday after dark.
