Day Of The Dead – Southport Pleasureland

If like me, you are always looking for ways to keep your kids entertained over Half Term, you have to know about this amazing festival known as ‘Day of the Dead’ at Southport Pleasureland.

The ‘Day of the Dead’ is a Mexican tradtion which is celebrated with a National Holiday and gives Mexicans the opportunity to remember and honour their deceased loved ones. In true Latin style, the street of Mexico are filled with colour, costumes, and music, as the people make offerings to their loved ones who have passed. The organisers of the event in Southport Pleasureland have now adopted this tradition and brought it to our very own seaside town.


Stilt walkers, flame eaters, fire-spinners, music, and dancers will descend on the park throughout the event, keeping kids and adults alike entertained. The rides will be in full swing (prices reduced to £1.50 throughout the night) and it’s also well worth noting that there will be a gin bar (much needed for the Mummies!) what more can you ask for! The day will close with a ‘not to be missed’ fabulous firework finale.

The event starts at 5pm on Saturday 2nd November with tickets for the event are priced at £10.80 (but with extra discount for families of 4 or more) You can buy tickets for the event here….Southport Pleasureland

For anyone travelling into Southport, there is plenty of local car parking available or you can travel by train with the station just a ten minute walk from Southport Pleasreland. Check out your journey with Merseyrail here.

The event has been a huge success in previous years so I hope to see you this year at the ‘Day of the Dead’, Southport Pleasureland.
