Ghosts, ghouls, witches and perhaps even a family of Flintstones! These are just some of the sights you will find down at the 2019 Blackwood Street Halloween Festival on Sunday 27th October in Mitchelton.
The annual community festival is one of the most popular – and definitely the spookiest – events to take place on the northside of Brisbane with over 5000 children and adults expected to participate this year. The Rotary Club of Mitchelton will again coordinate the event in conjunction with the Brisbane City Council, who is the major sponsor.
Blackwood Street, between Samford Road and Grovely Terrace, will close to car traffic between 3pm and 7pm on Sunday 27th October and the street will be transformed into a veritable playground of free entertainment. There will be something for all the family including childrens games, entertainers, live music, market stalls, face painting, a sensational Watermelon Eating Competition, plus so much more!! Organisers are also excited to introduce a new attraction this year, which will see the construction of a Haunted House. It promises to be hugely popular with the kids! There will also be awards for the Scariest and Best Costume so get your thinking cap on to what costume you might adorn.
So venture if you dare, and ‘Trick-or-Treat’ your way through the local businesses and market stalls.
