Halloween. The Tradition stems back to the old days when they believed the spirits crossed over on this night to their resting place. Lanterns were lit to guide them on their way and treats were given in exchange for prayers for their loved ones. Now days it is a great chance to dress up, be sweet or spooky, trick or treat and have a lot of fun.
Halloween is almost here again and the Annual Halloween Street Party is on at Manly Village, Saturday October 31 from 11am-9pm. The whole village is set to transform in true Halloween syle. This is an alcohol free event and is packed with things to do. It is a Family friendly party, so dress up and join in the fun!
