When October rolls around each year, you can be assured kids are getting excited for one day in particular, filled with treats, scary costumes and lots of laughter. This day is Halloween!

Halloween is celebrated on October 31st each year and was originally a tradition of the ancient celtic who would light fires and dress up in costumes to keep ghosts away.

Halloween at Warrawong Plaza

Here at Warrawong Plaza, we like to keep Halloween a little more fun. (No ghosts welcome!) We have organised an afternoon for everyone complete with trick or treating for the kids.

Bring your kids down to Warrawong Plaza at 3pm, dressed in their scariest costume. Each child will receive a free goodies bag to walk around the centre and collect their treats. Plus, there will be free plastercraft and face painting so kids can get their face painted to match their costumes when they arrive.

When: Thursday 25th October 2018

When: 3pm - 5.30pm

Please note, there is an age limit to take part in trick or treating. Children must be 13 years and under. They also must be accompanied by an adult.

Bookings are necessary. To book your spot, contact our Concierge team today.
