The Witches of Brunswick are brewing up a fair bit of mischief for Halloween, and everyone’s invited to be part of it on Saturday October 31 from 4pm to 9pm at Brunswick Heads Public School.

‘Last year’s Halloween Fairtastic was a huge success because it provided a super fun but also safe environment so families could come and enjoy our amazing rides, games and entertainment, instead of the heavy emphasis on trick or treating around the streets’, says Brunswick Heads Public School principal Trisha Parker.

‘It was so popular that we decided to move the fair to a Saturday this year to continue with the Halloween theme and we’ve also extended the finishing time to 9pm.’

There are still plenty of  Tricks & Treats in store at the fair, with a wheel for the kids as well as more than $10,000 worth of generously donated prizes on the popular Wheel of Winning, plus a new Silent Auction.

Prizes up for grabs include a Bluesfest Pass (2 x 3 day passes worth $760), three nights accommodation at any Bruns North Coast Holiday Park (up to $550), a night at Mantra on Salt Beach ($225), Photography packages from Kate Nutt, $500 worth of IGA vouchers, 2 Go Sea Kayak Tours, Macadamia Castle passes, $400 worth of Ocean Shores Country Club Golf vouchers, a unique handmade quilt (valued at $350), two family passes to Tropical Fruit World and tonnes more.

Prepare for some scary fun on four rides including the Bat Tower, Super Slide, Cave Man Capers and the Rocking Tug-Boat. Plus there’s a brand new haunted house, costume parade, freaky face-painting, a Halloween Cake Competition, Best Scarecrow Contest, indigenous hair wraps and rock painting craft and a showcase of singing, dancing and other performances from the students.

It’s also an evening for feasting with gourmet dinner on the green … choose from southern-style smoked brisket and salads, home-made curries, authentic middle eastern falafels, sushi and a traditional BBQ plus barista coffee, fruit slushies and plenty of sweety treats.

Money raised at Halloween Fairtastic will go towards the new outdoor teaching garden classroom which will become an asset for the school and community.

All night ride passes can be pre-purchased for $20 before Fairtastic at the School’s Office or $25 on the night (or $5 per ride).
