Great Halloween Pumpkin Exhibition

28loka

Halloween is almost here, so as at Hotel Florida Spa we love any kind of celebration, we will do our popular pumpkin competition again this year.

Despite Halloween is not something we have celebrated in Spain for long, in our hotel Halloween has now become a tradition.

Year after year our staff have proved they are amazing artists, and they dominate at teamwork. All participating departments do an outstanding job, have great imagination and put a lot of effort in their scary projects.  

The results are always awesome, so we are afraid it is going to be difficult to choose a winner as all pumpkins are amazing.

This year we have decided to innovate a bit and we are not only going to have our pumpkins on display at the hotel lobby so our guests can vote for them on the 30th, but we also have organised a great exhibition on the 31st in the commercial gallery of our sister hotel, Hotel Yaramar. There you will be able to see the spooky creations the staff of Hotel Florida Spa, Hotel Angela and Hotel Yaramar have prepared this Halloween.  

If you have the fortune of currently being on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa, we encourage you to vote for your favourite on the 30th and to visit our great global exhibition at Hotel Yaramar as by doing it you can win a great prize.

If you are not with us at the moment do not worry, as on our Facebook page we will indicate you how you can vote for the one you like the most as by doing it you will also have a chance to win a prize.  

As in previous year the winning department will get a meal out for the whole teamGood luck and may the best pumpkin win!  

Happy Halloween!!
