This year’s Manly Halloween Street Party was held on Friday the 31st at dusk. Dark and grisly creatures were out in force, gathering from all over Brisbane for what has steadily become the biggest Halloween event in Queensland. These creatures of the night traipsed down Cambridge Parade in a blur of red and black, creating a mirage of magic and mysticism. The highlight of the parade was a group of street performers, including two girls on stilts breathing fire and others banging drums.
A chilling, fire twirling act lit up the main stage, casting an eerie glow across the faces of a captivated audience. Costumes, glow sticks and light up gadgets were available for the less organised partiers to purchase, while a line of stalls offered up a range of peculiar odds and ends. An outdoor screening of the popular kid’s movie, Casper, kept children entertained and lots of people laid out blankets on the grass to watch. The evening climaxed with a firework display after which the smaller spooks were taken home to bed, leaving the streets to the larger spooks who partied on at local venues til late.
