Ghouls, ghosts and pirates
FANCY scaring the living daylights out of little kids for fun?
The Haunting of Oak Beach has been moved up a notch this year to a full blown Halloween theme park covering around two acres and the Demonised Ghoul behind the fright night is looking for volunteers to play a part.
The event has been in production since June with community volunteers from Oak Beach putting in a huge effort to create a great array of attractions from full size pirates to ghouls and wizards.
The organisers have put out the call for more volunteers to join the throng as spooky characters.
“This is not a backyard event or party,” the Demonised Ghoul said. “It’s a full-on Halloween attraction park.” The infamous and well travelled mannequin Lynne will donate her bodily parts either all together or separately to scary effect in the Haunted Graveyard, the Pirate Cove and even the Haunted Mansion.
Other characters guaranteed to thrill will be the full size dinosaur, gorillas, baboons and even a giant tiger which have found their way down to Oak Beach care of their owner Bruce Ferguson.
Michael Jackson’s Thriller will also make an impromptu guest appearance performed by the Port Douglas Academy of Performing Arts.
The Fairy Land for those of a more gentle disposition will be filled with metre-high paper mache characters. Gates open at the bewitching hour of 6pm on October 29.
The Demonised Ghoul is dreadfully anxious to get some more ghoulish volunteers to help make the Haunting of Oak Beach a success. Anyone interested can call 4099 3602.
