Trick or treat your way to some spooky fun
Visit Watergardens Town Centre in Taylors Lakes this Monday, 31 October 2016 to celebrate their Halloween Spooktacular with lots of activities for the kids and young-at-heart. While the grown-ups can enjoy the exclusive one day only Halloween offers at participating retailers, the littlies can get ready for the centre-wide trick or treat by picking up their bags at the customer service desk from 9:00 am. Be sure to fill up your bags with lots of goodies by visiting participating retailers throughout the centre from 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm.

Ever wanted to try pumpkin carving? Check out the live pumpkin carving by a local artist from 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm to see how it's done and you might just get the creative inspiration you need to get started. It might seem a little daunting initially but carving pumpkins is a whole lot of fun and a very forgiving activity for first-time crafters.
The Watergardens Town Centre will also be decked out as Eerie Lane with a giant pumpkin, haunted house, jumping castle, crazy hair decorating (wild colours and more), and a Halloween DJ.
After all the fun, you won't have to go too far to find something tasty at one of the cafes or restaurants offering everything from hamburgers, fish 'n' chips, Italian, Greek, or good ol' steak to satisfy your hunger.
And if you're feeling up to it, you could end the day catching a movie at the nearby Hoyts Cinemas or even enjoy a few games at the AMF Bowling. There is also plenty of parking and the town centre is easily accessible via Watergardens train station & bus precinct and the major highways.
