Night of frights

WITCHES, ghosts, vampires and zombies flocked to Coal Creek in Korumburra in their thousands on Saturday night for the annual Halloween party.
The old fashioned buildings of the park were the perfect backdrop for scary props and frightening faces for all of the kids trick or treating.
Coal Creek coordinator Rowena Ashley said the event was fantastic and every bit as good as last year.
“I actually think it was even better. The crowd seems to know how the night works now and instead of being inundated with people at once, they come in waves which is good,” she said.
“We are thinking around 4200 people attended this year, which might be down a little bit on last year but we are still really happy with it.”
Ms Ashley said they have already received some fantastic feedback and despite the less than perfect weather, people seemed to really enjoy the party.
“We had a good cross section of people again. It is a fantastic event that everyone loves,” she said.
“Next year we will try a few more different things, which people seem to like about the event. Each year we change it a little.”
