Get your Halloween colours on and get down to Fairtastic at Brunswick Heads Public School.
Brunswick Heads Public School Relieving Principal, Mel Currie says this is the sixth Fairtastic, so it is easy to find your groove. ‘This is an event for the whole community, she said. ‘Our Halloween Fair has been such a hit over the years because parents love the opportunity to have some Halloween fun in a safe, family-friendly environment.’
This year there will be a colourful street-food vibe. Yummy options include brisket, barbecue, curries, sushi, felafel, cakes, barista coffee and ice-cream!
While parents might come for the food, the kids will come for the rides with six awesome rides at this year’s event – The perfectly-themed Bat Tower and ever-popular Super Slide return. There are two levels of jumping castle – one for the bigger kids and one just for littlies. New this year are Tea Cups for those seeking a more gentle thrill, and the Round Up for those ready for some adrenalin.
Those brave enough to enter the Haunted House – a new feature of this year’s fair – can also expect a shot of adrenalin as they make their way through the lights and sounds of Halloween.
Traditional Fairtastic elements will be there for enjoying, with the Best Dressed and Cake Decorating competition. Dressing up is not essential, but throwing on a witch’s hat or skeleton t-shirt will make you feel right at home.
The school has been overwhelmed with generous donations towards their biggest fundraiser of the year, giving you opportunities to win big from either a single raffle ticket purchase or putting in your best bid for showstopper items like Falls and Laneway Festival tix, accommodation, and balloon rides.
Bring your gold coins for the Carnival Arcade games like Lob-a-Choc, the Trick or Treat Hallowheel, Five Pin Vortex and Chocopault. There’s free entertainment from 4pm and rides start at 5pm. All-night ride passes can be pre-purchased for $25 at the school office before Friday 9.30am, or for $30 on the night ($5 per single ride).
Fairtastic – Saturday 26 October at Brunswick Heads Public School, 4–9pm. Check out full details at Facebook @Fairtastic.
