Send the kids on an epic quest through the spooky Centennial ‘swamplands’

This Saturday, the lush green fields of Centennial Park will transform into a haunted playground kids must traverse to help the Wicked Witch of Centennial Park and co-conspirator the Mad Scientist brew deadly potions and conduct whacky experiments.

Dress them up in their favourite Halloween costume before collecting a trail map at the start line. They’ll follow the dots to five activity stations, all while dodging a multitude of menacing monsters and creepy critters lurking in the shadows. All little adventurers who make it to the finish line will have their bravery rewarded with a special Halloween treat.

For those with a crafty streak, there’s also a pumpkin carving competition being judged on the day – if you reckon your squash-shaving skills have a shot at glory, drop off your masterpiece the day before to be included.
