Sydney tries, a little, to mirror the ways of their North American friends, but their Halloween attempts are failed. In tribute to our fun, quirky and typically cold, wet tradition, we made our own upside down fun. Halloween night was spent with friends, eating fun hallo-treats and dressing up for the camera. The night after, my son and I decided to reinvent our annual trip to Fright Fest, via Luna Park.
Luna Park at night was spectacular. Creepy music, set on the water... it was dark and eerie. The rides seemed old (most likely they were) and I felt like I was in an old school Halloween “B” movie, straight out of circa 1982.
The afternoon was hot, reaching tempatures of over 100 degrees. By the time we were heading to the event, we were tired and sweaty... but the breeze came through and the sun set at just the right time. It started to drizzle and I felt some relief as we walked through the park. As the time passed, the rain grew strong and lightning broke over the harbour. Beautiful to watch, but a sign for us to end the evening.
All in all, it was a fun experience. I missed the tradition of home, but there is something to be said about this adventure, it could never be replicated:-)
