Spooktacular Halloween Dishes Dandenong Kids Fun Event
The Dandenong Market is a hub of activity and foodies delight anytime you visit, however, at different times throughout the year the markets specialise their days by themed celebrations. On Sunday 3rd November 2019, Dandenong Market is celebrating Halloween with heaps of ghoulish and ghastly fun.
Children will have lots of fun joining in the trick or treat treasure hunt, getting their faces painted with scary hairy makeovers, participating in craft and wand-making classes or play a part in great Halloween games. There will also be fantastic prizes for the best dressed in the Halloween Fashion Parade.
Keep an eye out for the Wicked Witch and Creepy Clown who will be lurking around the stalls while you indulge in a Spooktacular Halloween Feast of limited-edition dishes on offer from the market traders. If you are a food lover, you may like to take the new tour offered "Dandenong Market Street Food Tour", which are perfect for passionate foodies.
