Halloween is an interesting time. Only in recent years has the holiday really seemed to begin to take off in this sun-kissed country – and I couldn’t be happier about that. Halloween for me is what Christmas is for most people, the most wonderful time of year. From ‘creepy’ decorations to the legions of costumed children giggling and screaming their way around the neighbourhoods in search of candy, it truly is a very unique and very special holiday – with a horrific twist. This November 2nd Aussie World will be holding their annual Halloween party. Six hours of excitement, thrills and chills await all those brave enough to enter their gates.
So for my fellow pro-Halloweeners – the question remains, how would you rather celebrate this ghoulish holiday? Throw a costume party with bad music on a worse sound system with some sickly sweet punch you’re pretty sure you saw some seedy looking ghost pour something insidious into? Or how about something a little more family-friendly? Aussie World is once again holding their smash hit of a Halloween Festival, The Aussie World Halloween FestEVIL – The Sunshine Coasts biggest of All Hallows’ parties – And no seedy ghosts at the punch bowls – promise! With unlimited rides and frights and other fun scares Aussie World is putting on one hell of a show for the whole family: “This year’s Halloween FestEvil includes: four epic mazes, roving entertainment, live music, spooky disco in The Shed, trick or treating, plus rides and attractions. Families are welcome but parental guidance is recommended as some characters and scenes may frighten younger children. There will also be a dedicated kids zone separate from the main party that the little ones can enjoy!”.
As return participants, my pack of ghouls and I will definitely be putting our best work into our costumes and taking aim at the big prize but more than anything it’s something we as a family can bond over. The artistic and creative journey of conceptualising and creating our own and individual costumes and characters to accompany them, it’s something we as a unit always look forward to with excitement and joy.
