Family Friendly Halloween Events in Brisbane 2018

by Sally Foster (follow)
Get into the spooky spirit this Halloween

Having lived in Canada in my pre-mum life, I absolutely fell in love with Halloween. Its roots may not have taken place in Australia, but it is such a fun day, and kids can have a really great time dressing up and getting into the spooky spirit.

If you do decide to get involved in some Halloween activities this year, Brisbane has some great family-friendly events happening. Here are just a few that we have found. If you know of any more, please let us know by commenting on the post.

TrickorTreatme allows you to register your household’s interest, alongside your address and availability so that the Trick or Treaters in the neighbourhood will know you’re just as excited as they are to participate!

It is a family friendly, free event, with street and stage entertainment, children's activities, Harbourside Eat Street, on water activities and displays, market stalls, rides and amusements.
