MWA HA HA … The Bats Are Back in Town!

The Mount Eden Village Business Association presents:
Free fun for the kids this spooky season!

Halloween in the Village returns for an 11th year to Mt. Eden Village on Saturday 27th October 2018. Featuring a potent and masterful line up of witches and wizards this haunting crew are sure to send kids into a Spooktacular frenzy with fun activities on The Village Green.

Kids and all budding spooks are invited to dress up and take part in the fun, as their favourite Halloween creature – a witch, a bat, a zombie, a vampire or even a Dementor!

With entertainment created by some of Auckland’s leading actors and theatre makers, this is a family friendly, anarchic Halloween event not to be missed.

Activities include:

FEAR FACTOR – taste the food (if you dare) prepared by Mazui Majo the fiendish food witch.
SPOOKY FUTURE – have your fortune told by the hysterical and the uncannily accurate Freakella the Fortune Witch.
CRAFTY MADNESS – make your very own creepy Halloween craft to take home with Crewellini the Craft Witch.
CAST A SPELL – help the naughty Egor cast witchy spells with the strangest and most unbelievable of ingredients.
LOOK & LISTEN – groove and move to the spooky mixes with music and have a zombie make-over by the transformation witches.
HORROR SHOTS – make sure your passport pic for Spooksville is up to date with a horrific selfie from our very own scary photo booth.

Saturday 27th October, 12pm-2pm
Location: The Village Green, Essex St Reserve (parallel to Mt. Eden Rd just behind the village shops)
Free event, all materials and entertainment provided. No bookings required.

Weather: Witches and wizards will perform in even the dastardliest of weather, however if a hurricane approaches, the event will be cancelled. Stayed updated on Mt Eden Village’s social media channels – Facebook, Twitter.

This is a non-profit family event organised and subsidised by the Mt Eden Village Business Association.
