Looking for a frightfully good time this Saturday, October 28? Redcliffe Market’s Festival of Frights promises a booty-full bounty of food, shopping, entertainment and activities for all ages. Here are the activities to look forward to throughout the day:
The Best Bites at the Festival of Frights
Indulge your taste buds with delicious street eats from Festival of Frights’ food vendors. Sink your teeth into savoury bites from Bapboi and Opa Greek Street Food. Satisfy your sweet tooth with baked goods from Lamun and Bumbleberry Bakes. With so many options for food and drink, people of all appetites can find grub to delight.
Activities for Your Little Ones
Whilst nibbling and tippling, make time for adventures! Little ones can take part in a pirate scavenger hunt with prizes. Get their face painted, let them craft their own Jolly Roger flag, and create a pirate bounty to take home. Grown-ups can hunt for photo ops throughout the market, take flash mob dance lessons or simply wander whilst listening to lively pirate tunes.
When the clock strikes 8:30 p.m., look to the night sky for a fiery finale! Before that, sign up for the Best Dressed Competition to win Professional Portraiture Gift Prizes. Break out your most creative garb to impress the judges. With so many activities available, boredom won’t be walking this plank!
