The winter nights are starting to draw closer and as the sun sets earlier each day, it is time for some halloween fun. On October 31st there will be a Halloween BBQ party at the University Mound Ladies Home (350 University Street). Starting at 5pm, there will be an array of food, donated by the Help McLaren Park group. To keep the children entertained there will also be some fun games and activities.
Then the fun really starts! At around 6pm the kids get to walk around the entrance lounge at the ladies home. Many of the elderly women will be ready with bags full of candy. After this parade of sugar hungry kids has ended, everyone heads over to another Portola secret. The halloween houses of Princeton Street where more “trick or treating” continues. The residents of this street go all out for Halloween and there are many houses fully kitted out in scarey attire.
The organizers are also looking for help, so if you will be able to bring some games, some food & drinks or just help out in general, please contact Amy and Trilce. The Portola Planet will be dragging the entire Ninja family over, so come and join us for a bit of good old fashioned neighborhood fun.
