Where the (Spooky) Parties at? Kid Friendly Halloween on the Gold Coast
Are you planning a kid-friendly Halloween on the Gold Coast but don’t know where to start? Families Magazine Gold Coast has got you covered. We share a comprehensive wrap-up of freaky, family-friendly Halloween events happening on the Gold Coast this October.
Trick or Treat: Halloween is on its way!
Back when we were kids, Halloween barely got a mention. There was certainly nowhere to go trick-or-treating, nor anybody in the street decorating their house with cobwebs or fake tombstones. Chances are if you rocked up to the neighbours house wearing a Freddie Kruger mask while carrying a big canvas bag demanding candy, they’d slam the door in your face and call the cops.
Nowadays, once October rolls around you’d be hard pressed to walk into any major store without coming face to face with all kinds of creepy costumes, spooky decorations and every kind of Halloween candy you could think of.
Now, I don’t know about you, but in our family the promise of getting dressed up in a costume and eating copious amounts of candy is just far too appealing to ignore, so for the like-minded families we’ve thrown together a comprehensive list of the best kid friendly Halloween events on and around the Gold Coast.
Halloween Gold Coast Wrap: There’s no fear of getting all dressed up with nowhere to go trick-or-treating this October!
