We're here again. For all the wonderful and weird happenings in the Chinese capital this Halloween. Look no further than the guide below.
At JING-A Longfusi Taproom, you've got your chance to step up to the challenging but oh so good fun Beer Mile. Think you can handle four pints while running a mile? Why not give it a go?! And, remember to arrive in Halloween costume.
There's more than just drinking and running. Plenty of venues are putting on family friendly events. Zarah Café is offering fun activities for kids, as well as brunch, booze and a party.
For those who want a touch of indie music with their Halloween, MusicDish's Haunted House event might just be for you. As well as a great line-up of live indie bands, there'll also be scary movies and, of course, fancy dress.
Wherever you choose to spend the Halloween weekend, we hope you have a great time and manage to spook some people's socks off. Remember to pay attention to pandemic control measures; a negative nucleic acid test issued within 72 hours is a requirement to enter most places in Beijing.
Otherwise, from everyone at That's Beijing, have a happy (and scary) Halloween!
