Ampol Wynnum Halloween Parade 2023

This is an absolute highlight on the bayside events calendar when thousands flock to the beautiful area to partake in a freaky-fun festival!

Make sure you are aware of nearby parking signs and restrictions and avoid parking over anyone’s driveway. (That might end up in a TRICK rather than a treat!) There are plenty of food and drink stalls at the festival but make sure you keep the waterways clean by disposing of your rubbish thoughtfully or taking it with you.

See you there! Mwhahahahaha!
