Over 2500 ghouls, goblins and colourful day-of-the-dead characters arrived at Ferny Creek Reserve on 26 October for a day of visual delights at this year’s Halloween on the Green.

Undeterred by the weather forecast, The Philanthropic Collective once again created a spectacular charity event for all the entire community.

“We were firmly glued to the weather radar throughout the day, ready to enact our emergency plan,” said event director Andrew Fillip-Gautier,

“But the weather didn’t stop us and the sun made several appearances.”

Children and families lined up to be part of the huge amount of free entertainment with Le Pine Funerals a stand out highlight, along with the New Orleans style Mayors Parade.

Andrew told the Mail the day was pure theatre designed to ignite the imagination.

“There would be few events that a family of five could attend for under $50.00 and have access to free carnival rides, endless entertainment and food” said Andrew.

Andrew and his team promise even more surprises for 2020 with Halloween falling on Saturday 31 October.
