Halloween Party for St Austell this October half term
Tue 10th October 2017
Family-friendly Halloween fun is heading to St Austell this autumn half term with a lively musical party planned.
White River Place is once again hosting a free, friendly fun day designed for all ages to enjoy, with traditional games and activities rather than spooky scares, and plenty of music, singing and dancing to keep the kids entertained.
Head to the heart of St Austell town centre to join in the fun from 11am until 3.30pm on Saturday 28th October and enjoy activities like pumpkin carving, face painting, a fancy dress competition, arts and crafts, and musical dance games.
Popular local entertainers Music Makers will be running the party from 11am in South Square, next to the entrance to the car park, and there will be some familiar faces leading the entertainment too, with characters like Batman and Princess Anna paying a visit.
The Halloween Party includes:
- Pumpkin carving
Free pumpkins and pumpkin carving available for the first 150 visitors. Carving tools will be provided; adult supervision required, although Batman and Spiderman will be in charge.
- Face painting
Stinky Pete the Pirate will be painting faces – make yourself look extra-spooky or go glitz and glam! Free of charge, available for children over the age of 3 years.
- Arts & crafts
Join the art table and let Princess Anna and the Witch Elphaba help you colour in or paint a Halloween-themed picture, as well as enjoying some fun, arty games like Pin the Nose on the Pumpkin, and Wrap the Superheroes into Mummies.
- Music Makers
Halloween Dance Party
Music will be playing all day – join in the dancing and singalongs with dance ribbons, bouncy spiders, pom poms, tap sticks, musical instruments, a giant parachute and much more.
- Fancy Dress Competition
Prizes will be given out for the best dressed children at 12noon, 1.30pm and 2.30pm in South Square.
Richard Hurst, Manager of White River Place, said: “We’re excited to be throwing another family-friendly, Halloween-themed fun day this half term, designed for all ages to enjoy, with traditional activities like pumpkin carving and lots of lively, entertaining musical games.
“The Music Makers crew were a big hit this summer when they hosted one of our Terrific Tuesday fun days so we’re sure they’ll be a popular attraction for local families this October half term – especially with well-loved characters like Batman and Princess Anna coming back to see us in St Austell.”
