There is only one day of the year you will find witches, fairies, skeletons, spider-men, vampires and many otherwordly characters walking the streets – and that is on Halloween.
Traditionally an American institution, it has become quite popular in other countries, including Australia.
In the Murraylands people are getting into the spirit of the day, with the trend of seeing more and more children and adults embrace the festivities.
One way to safely keep track of participants who host a trick or treat at their homes in the region is the Halloween Trick or Treat Murray Bridge Facebook page.
Page host Laura Firth had over 350 people experience her haunted house last year, with high hopes of reaching higher numbers this year.
“I enjoy Halloween, it is a family fun night where everyone loves to dress up and have fun,” she said.
“I love to see their faces when they leave the house.”
The day is celebrated each year on October 31.
