Halloween fun for stumpery

Children, monsters and ghouls clamber over the stumpery during Halloween Fun at Queens Park last year.

IF you go down to the Queens Park Stumpery on October 31, you better beware.

Halloween-styled pumpkins with creepy grins, spider webs with huge spiders, flying bats and all things spooky will be used to decorate the stumpery as part of the Queens Park Stumpery Halloween Fun night.

Children and adults were encouraged to dress in Halloween costumes as part of the free family event, organised by the Invercargill City Council parks division and Rotary Club of Invercargill North, Rotarian Louise Pagan said.

Last year’s inaugural event proved popular, with about 1000 people attending, mostly dressed in various colourful and often scary costumes, she said.

Activities will begin at 6.30pm at the stumpery, behind the Foundation for the Blind on Queens Dr, with prizes for the best costumes, and will include games.

To help keep hunger at bay, a sausage sizzle will also be operating.
