It's time to dig out your favourite costumes for the annual Halloween Trick or Treat Celebrations in the Taupo town centre. Perhaps you'd like to be a superhero this year, your favourite animal or a princess! The more creative, the better, and we love homemade outfits!
There will be plenty of treats from local shops plus the More FM Creep Cauldron, Youthtown Haunted Shop, the Countdown Free Fruit Stand and bouncy castles from Taupo Hire on the reserve next to St John ambulance. In keeping with our efforts to reduce plastic and rubbish, the lollies from shops will be unwrapped old school lollies such as jet planes, pineapple lumps, strawberries, teeth and more.
We have three new partners for this year's event:
- The Ghost Train will be running from 4:00pm on the south domain for a gold coin donation. Proceeds will go to a local charity.
- Act 2 are putting on a Hallowed Glow Disco, starring DJ Alexi, from 4:30-6:30pm at 11 Tongariro St., in order to raise funds for their next production. Tickets cost $5 and there will be glow sticks & sausages for sale.
- The Taupo Museum will be handing out lollies from 3:30-4:30pm, and the Taupo Library will have spooky stories from 4:30-5:00pm in the upstairs room.
Date: Wednesday, 31 October
Place: Taupo town centre, main pedestrian areas
All children are welcome, but they MUST be accompanied by an adult. Please remember to bring your manners along and make sure everyone gets some treats!
