Thousands have fun
The Halloween Alternative Party by the Lake, organised by the three churches in Whitby – St Mary’s Anglican Church, The Anchor and North Porirua Baptist Church – was a big success on October 31.
The sun came out to enable the mostly outdoor event to run as planned and thousands of people were able to enjoy the entertainment provided.
Mana MP Kris Faafoi attended and said: ‘‘The fact that my niece and her friends almost jumped out of the car before it stopped shows how stoked they were the party went on despite the weather reports.
‘‘It was great fun for the masses of families and a really good way to celebrate in a safe environment.’’
Loads of vouchers were given away from local businesses and the indoor musical entertainment was well attended.
The event is in its 14th year.
