MORE than 4000 people flocked to Coal Creek on Saturday night in their scariest costumes to celebrate Halloween.
And what a night, with loads of activities keeping visitors of all ages entertained.
The annual event kicked off at 5.30pm, with hundreds quickly forming a queue – all eager to check out this year’s displays, live music and games.
Visitors enjoyed rides on the ghost trains, while also picking up free chips if they dared to enter a haunted house.
Although a brief shower of rain saw some witches melt, it quickly passed for the family-friendly event.
The Coal Creek Community Park and Museum would like to thank all their sponsors for their invaluable support, including: Parry’s Korumburra, Burra Car Club, Kooringal Ladies, Michael’s IGA Korumburra, Korumburra CFA, Hillside Lodge, Korumburra Scouts, Bendigo Bank Korumburra, Phillip Island Nature Parks, Costume.com.au and Shirley Arista Photography.
The event could not got have gone ahead without the support of Coal Creek and South Gippsland Shire Council staff who gave up their night to help, plus the hard working and dedicated volunteers.
