Halloween Spooktacular a Hit at Manor Lakes

10 November 2023

Close to 10,000 residents, families and friends assembled in high spirits on a cool evening on Tuesday, 31st October for the much-loved Manor Lakes “Spooktacular” event, now in its 11th year.

Once again, Dennis Family Corporation collaborated with the founders and hosts of the initiative, local resident couple and Halloween enthusiasts Andy and Maria Price, to ensure a non-stop evening of entertainment for everyone, with the main hub of activity centred around “Dalrymple Cemetery”.

Loads of fun activities included best costume and best house decorations competitions, raffles, colouring contests, a spooktacular treasure hunt, an Amazing Race-themed event, and much more.

In keeping with Halloween tradition, lollies could be found in abundance for trick-or-treaters and food trucks were also on hand to serve delicious crowd favourites.

This year’s event also featured a surprise flash mob, with all performers dressed in a variety of festive costumes for their sets, and an LED light installation for unique selfies and family photos.

A big “thank you” to everyone who entered the competitions and provided gold coin donations in support of the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

It is anticipated that this year’s overall fundraising effort will collect close to $13,000 for the charity.

Congratulations and thank you to all the Manor Lakes residents, families, and friends who helped make this year’s event such a success.

We look forward to another super spooky Halloween in 2024!
