Chills and Thrills with Fest-Evil this October
Ghouls, ghosts, and creatures of the night rejoice, because Fest-Evil is returning to Surfers Paradise this October and is the ultimate experience for Halloween in 2019. Running over the weekend from the 31st of October to the 2nd of November, you’ll be covered in goosebumps from head to toe… or you’ll be joining in the fun in creeping out the unsuspecting spectators on the streets of Surfers Paradise.
Dodge over a thousand undead with the terrifying Zombie Walk raising funds and awareness for the Brain Foundation. Marvel at the incredible acrobatic feats of the roving Vampire performers. Quiver in terror as the spooky stilt walkers tower above you. Get dressed up in your most terrifying costumes and join in the family fun, with free entertainment, kids activities, and events.
Didn’t bring a costume? No problem- you can get your face painted and look the part. Want to come back next year and win the dress up competition? Get involved with the spooky makeup workshop and you’ll learn everything you need to know to transform into something terrifying.
Indulge in a little trick or treat fun, or show off your best moves dancing to Thriller and other creeptastic songs in the Post-Parade Street Party. Check out the best costumes with the Costume Character Competition on the Fest-Evil Stage in Cavill Mall. A delight for all ages, and the perfect place to get inspired for your own costume.
Live music, performances, DJ’s and of course the locals going to extremes with the most mind blowing costumes around. You’ll be absolutely blown away and have a blast getting involved with this family friendly event over the three days of the festival along the Surfers Paradise Esplanade and surrounds.
There are also a range of 18+ “after hours” events throughout the Fest-Evil weekend, so the grown ups can let loose, embrace their alter ego and get well and truly into character, and dance the night away with some creepy cocktails in hand.
There are a range of free and ticketed events as part of Fest-Evil. Magicians will be performing on the streets, flash mobs can erupt into dance at any point, and everything just feels a little bit more fun when the whole family is dressed up, don’t you think?
