This is Bocuk Night! Crowds of dressed-up residents take part in Turkish Halloween celebration in Camlica

Crowds of spookily dressed residents took part in a frenzied celebration of Bocuk Night, often referred to as local Halloween, in the village of Camlica on Saturday. The footage shows dancing partygoers scaring the locals.

The celebration drew people from various parts of the country, including Tekirdag, Kırklareli and Istanbul. During the festival, people dressed in scary clothes, painting faces or wearing masks, terrified locals by banging on the windows and doors of houses.

The Bocuk Night has not been held for two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the festival was held for the 16th time with the support of local authorities and residents.
