Although many Aussies see Halloween as an American tradition, the fun of getting dressed up, eating lollies or drinking cocktails and celebrating the day of the dead is understandably gaining traction in Australia. Go Byron is your quirky cabbie that will help you get around to all the best trick-or-treating locations, halloween parties and freaky fairs. Download the app to get there even faster and cheaper.
The Great Northern Hotel is hosting ‘The Halloween Hotel’ on the 26th of October at 9pm which features the Pist Idiots, Israeli Chicks, Perve Endings, The Oogars, DJ Mohndoo & Wade Roberts. It’s free entry and for 18+ only. Dressing up is essential as they re giving away two $100 bar tabs for the best dressed!
For the families in the shire that want to enjoy the magic of dressing up with your babes and heading out for a feast of lollies, be sure to check out the Brunswick Heads Public School’s Fairtastic Halloween Fair. With heaps of rides, live entertainment, food stalls and games the kids will be sure to leave full, tired and happy. Plus it’s a fundraiser for a really great local school so that’s definitely an added bonus.
To celebrate on the actual day of the dead join the team at Balcony Bar & Oyster Co. for some halloween fun from 12pm. There will be themed food and cocktails to scare and delight you served from 12pm.
The real fun will kick off with happy hour at 4pm with prizes for the best costumes going to the mums and dads that bring in their little minions. After 8pm there will be an 18+ event for all the demons, devils and lovers of the dead to sip spooky cocktails and enjoy some festive tunes.
