October 31 is Halloween : this is not a typically French celebration, so you want see many children going door to door asking for “Tricks or treats !” but, still, pumpkins will have their day. Disneyland Paris organizes a big halloween party, otherwise you could check out the Manoir de Paris, exploring all kind of gruesome legends about Paris.
