The ninth edition of The Shopping Night arrives tomorrow in Barcelona. And the famous Black Friday is the next day (November 23rd). These are two days that you can’t miss! Black Friday always is the day following the Thanksgiving Day in the USA, the fourth Thursday of November, it is officially known as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season since the early 50s, but the term itself did not become famous until the 1980s.
The beautiful Paseo de Gracia street will be the scene of the shopping night. Christmas magic arrives to the streets of Barcelona as the Christmas lights will be switched on for the first time and illuminate the whole city tomorrow! All the shops will decorate their windows accordingly and also propose various cool activities inside. This year the event is all about discounts, shopping, music, gastronomy and culture.
There is a lot to see! Every year for Black Friday you can find great discounts on clothes, food, electronics, even flight tickets are for sale. You can create your personal shopping route with your favorite shops only and you can also visit the websites in advance to be prepared.
This time a lot of attention will be paid to music and gastronomy.
