For a number of years Halloween has been gaining momentum in New Zealand.
 
We at the Neighbourhood Trust and St Albans Baptist Church, want to see families enjoying themselves and spending quality time together, but instead by celebrating life, wellbeing and diversity, rather than Halloween traditions. So we put on an alternative event each year on the 31st October – the Light Party!
 
This counter-cultural event provides a safe environment for the whole family to have fun together.
 
There’s lots of entertainment, including:
  • Inflatable playground
  • Farm animal petting zoo
  • Face painting
  • Crafts
  • Games
  • Pre-schoolers playroom
  • Black light disco
  • Kids’ entertainers
  • Live music
  • Immersive power point display
  • Free sausage sizzle
  • Free kai
  • Coffee cart
The Light Party is a great opportunity for families to laugh together, eat together, and enjoy doing something that is all about celebrating life and joy in our community.
 
This year our theme is ‘Noah’s Ark’, so come along dressed as your favourite animal!
