Halloscream 4: Return of the Forgotten Funfair – Luna Park

It’s no surprise last year sold out, so grab a ticket and head down between the 28th-31st.

Day of The Dead Fiesta – Two Wolves Cantina
Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is so much more than sugar skulls. This cultural celebration of food, family and community is one huge fiesta.

Don’t rookie your costume at home, free face painting from 5-8pm plus DJ’s will be on board from 7pm. Two Wolves is a community cantina, run as a social enterprise with volunteers at the helm. Buenos noches!
