It's October and you've probably seen more and more decorations, costumes and 2 for 1 lolly bags hitting the shelves of your local stores, it can only mean one thing- Halloween night will soon be upon us.
Being from the UK, Halloween is actually one of my favourite holidays so I feel it's only right to advertise the amazing celebration that Manly Harbour Village puts on every year- the famous Halloween Street Party! We attended with our 3 year old son last year and I couldn't recommend it highly enough for all members of the family.
Every year on Halloween weekend, Manly Village becomes home to over 100 market stalls, amusement rides, live entertainment and fireworks as well as much, much more. My favourite part? The spooky, ghoul filled Halloween Parade of course!
This years festivities take place on Saturday 29th October, starting at 11am and finishing with fireworks at 9pm. And the best bit? Cost of entry is free of charge!
