This Is Halloween, Everybody Make A Scene

This Is Halloween, Everybody Make A Scene

Emma Ferraro

It's true that Australian Halloween isn't as widely celebrated as American Halloween. We don't typically invest in any of the usual traditions, but if there's one thing that Australians do reliably well is dress up and party. It's a month until Halloween, so we've collated a list of Halloween events around Radelaide for you to get in on.

If you ask us, the only real problem is that you can't attend all of them. 

Cable Kidz Halloween @ Fat Controller

Tricks and treats all night long; including fairy-floss, popcorn, and face-painting.

When: Thursday, October 27, 10PM-5AM. 

Where: Cable Kidz, CNR of Bank St and North Tce

 

Day Of The Dead Party @ Super California:

When: Friday, October 28, 9PM-3AM

Where: Super California, 9 Hindley St. 

 

CarnEvil: UniSA Halloween Party:

"Step right up to the deadliest show on earth" - UniSA are bringing back their carnival-themed Halloween party. Hosted by The Evil Ringmaster, and his twisted sidekick, Stitches The Clown (Ben and Liam from Fresh 92.7), the party promises spine-chilling attractions in the sideshow alley, free carnival treats, face-painting, drinks in The Big Top, and the opportunity to murder the dance-floor. All students left unattended will be sold to the circus.

Where: The University of South Australia, Brookman Building.

Halloween Boat Party @ Taking Back Saturday

TBS are known for hosting 2000's pop-punk themed nights at The Rhino Room, but this Halloween, the party is heading to the open seas. The Port Princess Dolphin cruise-liner departs Port Adelaide at 7pm sharp, and the team have got enough Fall Out Boy to keep you partying through the night (or at least until they dock again at 11pm.) Due to limited capacity, tickets are selling out fast.

When: Saturday, October 29, 7PM-11PM.

Where: Port Adelaide, SA. 

 

Horror Movie Campout

This October, Australia's first horror movie festival is back with a vengeance. An overnight, interactive camping experience, guests are dared to survive a night of horror-filled entertainment. The night includes immersive scare actors, live performances, a "death chamber" scare maze, and, as the title suggests, a massive outdoor cinema screening intense short horror flicks. 

When: Saturday and Sunday, October 29-30, 2:30PM-10AM

Where: Wirrina Cove Holiday Park, Paradise Drive, Wirrina Cove (about an hour's drive from Adelaide.) 

 

Stranger Things: 80's Halloween Party @ Hacienda: 

With an homage to hit supernatural thriller Stranger Things, Hacienda invites you to "enter the mysterious darkness of the Upside Down." Combined with an 80's twist, Hacienda will be playing 80's tunes, and encouraging partygoers to dress up in 80's and 90's themed spooky dress-ups, including costumes from Nightmare on Elm Street, Aliens, The Exorcist, and The Shining. 

When: Saturday, October 29, 8PM-4AM.

Where: Hacienda, Synagogue Place, Adelaide.

 

Adelaide Goal Halloween Party

When: Saturday, October 29, 8PM-2AM.

Where: Adelaide Gaol, 18 Gaol Road, Adelaide.
