Spooky night success

GHOULS, witches, vampires and aliens flocked to Coal Creek on Saturday night for the annual Halloween celebrations.

The heritage buildings in the park were suitably set for a scary theme, with even a torture chamber on display.

The live shows sold out and trick or treat tickets were all bought, with over 5200 patrons coming through the gates on the night.

It wasn’t only the young who donned a scary costume either, with parents dressed as well as their children.

Coal Creek co-ordinator Rowena Ashley was very happy with the turn out.

“We wanted to break the 5000 and we did, which is fantastic,” she said.

“We had people coming from all over as well. Families came from Prahran, Eltham, Pakenham, Sale, Traralgon and everywhere in between.”

Rowena and her team are already thinking about more things for next year’s event.

“We’ve got some ideas of things that work well and we’re looking to expand even further,” she said.

“We’d like to thank IGA for their donation of fruit and vegetables, Korumburra Rotary for sponsoring the Scarecrow competition and Parry’s Gifts for donating the trophies.”
