Halloween in the City

By Barcham - 24 September 2013 1

Halloween

Halloween is an American tradition that I wished had more influence here.

Where I grew up as a kid had a huge American pupulation so Halloween was a really big deal, with hundreds of costumed kids and adults flocking the streets at night and mountains of candy to be had.

I was also lucky enough to spend Halloween in the states one year and witness the insanity there. I remember going into a bank that had been decorated to look like a crypt and all the tellers were vampires, it was amazing.

I want that here, so I am so totally behind this idea.

Halloween in the City from Mon 28 Oct – Sun 3 Nov 13 includes Anime, Zombies, Day of the Dead, prizes, face painting and more.

28 Oct – 3 Nov Decorated shop fronts

31 Oct – Halloween costume parties with great prizez at a number of venues

1 Nov – Otakufest 2013 ‘obsessed with anime’ brought to you by Impact Records

2 Nov – Canberra Zombie Walk 2013

3 Nov – Halloween & Day of the Dead Family Day in the city. Costume competition, trick or treating, pumpkin carving demonstration, spooky stories and a costume parade curated by the fabulous ‘You Are Here’ creators.

OoooOOooOohhhh!

Most people think Halloween is an American tradition so they hate it (the scotts brought it to North America). The kids love it, so on that basis alone I think its pretty kewl. Kids are kids for such a short period of time, if its an opportunity to have fun for them and something to look forward to, then great stuff.
