Tenerife is an island focused on tourism, so it's no wonder that as a tourist destination, it has embraced quickly holidays such as Halloween. When you're on holiday somewhere, any reason to party and have more fun is quickly accepted.
As the holiday has grown in popularity, more and more people have embraced it and get costumed. If you plan on attending a Halloween party you should get dressed up.
You can, but it's not necessary, especially if you're staying in the Playa de las Americas area, where lots of shops sell costumes already. You will find kids costumes for Halloween, as well as costumes for adults in most of the Chinese shops at really good prices, so there's no need to stuff them in your suitcase unless it's a really special costume.
Large hotels will organize kids' activities and parties as part of the daily entertainment.
Many shopping malls will also organize activities for kids during the day, such as pumpkin carving, face painting and costume contests.
Restaurants and bars may also organize activities during the daytime for kids, but they aren't usually advertised much in advance. Just get dressed up, go out and see what you can find.
If you fancy carving your own pumpkins, you shouldn't have any trouble in finding those, especially in the big supermarkets (LIDL, Mercadona) and there may be some local shops in the South area (Costa Adeje, Playa de Las Americas, Los Cristianos) that will also stock pumpkins in the days before Halloween.
Many bars, pubs and restaurants will host dedicated Halloween parties, especially in the tourist areas in the south.
These are some of the places in Tenerife that usually organize a party or event on Halloween:
