If you’re searching for some spooky inspiration – look no further. There’s heaps of fangtastic Halloween fun taking place at Elephant Park this week.

A spooky pumpkin trail

Our natural play area at Elephant Springs is going to be full of spooky pumpkin lanterns from the 27th to 31st October. You can wander round the light display from 6pm each night. Read the details here.

Pumpkin spiced everything…

Sink your teeth into some pumpkin spiced mac and cheese served up by Miami Bites at the Tap In.

Or if you’d prefer to keep it for your coffee, Change Please will be offering the autumn staple, pumpkin spiced latte, every day until 6pm.

Ok, so not quite pumpkin spiced, but Pot & Rice have created the Halloween themed cocktail Vampire’s Kiss. Ingredients are a surprise – you’ll have to taste it for yourself.


Four Quarters Hip Hop Halloween

That’s right – the best arcade games of the 90s accompanied by good old fashioned 90s hip hop. One for the non-traditionalists who still like to mark the occasion. If you want to attend, tickets are available for over 18s only!


Castle Square’s Spooktacular

A family friendly event, Castle Square is hosting a series of Halloween themed workshops and activities for people of all ages. There will also be a spooky story telling corner that’s appropriate for little ones! All the info is available on the Castle Square website.  


Halloween for the family at MMY

No tickets required here! All week you can bring the little ones along for daytime activities with a spooky theme. Face painting, decorated snacks and colouring tables are on hand to keep little ones entertained while you enjoy good food and drinks with your friends and family. Costumes are encouraged! That includes you, grown-ups!


Responsible pumpkin disposal

Many of us will have carved a pumpkin come the 31st of October. If you have, consider what you’re going to waste and be creative with your pumpkin!


Why not harvest the seeds and roast them for topping of soups and autumnal casseroles? Or use your pumpkin itself for some plant-based meals. Once you’ve carved your pumpkin, you can always put the jack-o-lantern to good use as a seasonal planter, or compost it so all those juicy nutrients will feed future crops.
