Halloween at St James Park
In partnership with Ray White Real Estate, this event took place in St. James Park last Friday 30th October from 4:30 – 5:30pm. Set up began at 2.30 with a group of willing Rotarian workers putting up the Gazebo and assembling the 5 Scavenger Hunt stations.
Before it opened we had people queuing at the gate and with the smell of the BBQ on a wonderful balmy evening wafting through the air over 420 children and families raced around the park pencils and paper in hand to claim their bag of sweets.
Many of the families had costumes, faces painted and all the Halloween accessories to conjure up the scariness of Halloween. It was a very colourful event and we received many positive comments from families who were appreciative of having a safe and fun event to attend.
Working alongside the Ray White team makes this a winning combination as they enable Rotary to have greater exposure when advertising on their social media site and we collaborate very well bagging up sweets, setting up the stations and sharing the publicity.
A big thank you to the team of helpers who made it so much easier to bring some good old fashioned fun to the families in Papanui.
