Who says Halloween is just for kids? Kids at heart are also having a ball in this fun holiday! It’s time to carve your lanterns, watch some horror classics, and put on your craziest costumes! 

We’ve compiled some of the best NZ Halloween parties for 2020 so you can get started. Find the best Halloween events near you and don’t forget to party responsibly.

Get your creep on

Halloween isn’t complete without costumes! You’re never too old for the silly superhero costume, and you’re never too young for the Victorian-inspired attire. Turn your creepiest side on (no, not that kind of creepy, okay?) for this spookiest day of the year.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to your costume choices. Be as creative as possible, and don’t be afraid to go crazy! You can even wear your wildest sets of clothes, and quite possibly, no one will judge you — 'cause it’s Halloween!

Personalise the scariest mask ever

Enjoy your Halloween, but don’t forget to wear your masks on! It’s not bad to enjoy, but remember that the Coronavirus is still around the corner. To match the spooky time of the season, customise your mask to be the scariest ever!

Draw anywhere from spiders and ghastly creatures to real creepy stories — like due dates and deadlines! Just remember that your decors don’t interfere with the protection properties of your mask, and you’re all good to go.
