Have a spooktacular night

After having to cancel last year due to COVID-19, Wyreema Community Hall’s Trick or Treat Halloween Event will be back scarier than ever on Saturday 30 October.

The Phillips Family goes all out decorating their house for Halloween, winning best decorated house in 2019 as voted for by the kids. From left, Leanne and Michelle Phillips with young trick-or-treaters Piper and Tiana.

Running for many consecutive years before 2020, the Trick or Treat Halloween Event won the Community Event of the Year award at the 2020 and 2019 Cambooya Australia Day celebrations.

The day’s festivities will begin at the Wyreema Hall at 4.30pm when kids and parents can collect their maps and set off Trick or Treating.

Kids and parents should take their time on preparing costumes, as there will be prizes for the best dressed costumes for multiple age categories.  

Judging of the costumes will start at 6.30pm sharp and parents can get dressed up too.

All children must be registered with the event and accompanied by an adult.

Afterwards, everyone is encouraged to go back to the hall for a disco party and sausage sizzle starting at 6pm.

There will also be burgers, icy poles, snow cones, chips and drinks available for purchase on the night.

Secretary of Wyreema Community Hall Sara-Jane Howell said this year there is a new online registration form.

“It will get you through the door quicker on the night as all we have to do is scan your ticket on the way through,” Mrs Howell said. 

“Unfortunately, we will be unable to take late registrations on the night as the congestion through the door is too great.”

Mrs Howell said organisers are also looking for more Wyreema houses to participate in the event.

“If you would like to welcome spooky visitors to your door for Halloween in Wyreema, please register your house for inclusions,” she said.

Mrs Howell said participating houses do not need tovdecorate, but are more than welcome to do so.

“We are giving a prize for the best decorated house this year, judged by the kids on the night,” she said.

“Please have some small treats ready for your visitors. 

“We have enjoyed fabulous Halloween events for the past eight years and would really appreciate your support again this year.”

All registrations for trick-or-treating and participating houses must be made before 5pm on Friday 30 October.
