Over 100 market stalls will be featured at the street party. The amusement rides and free movie at the park at 7:00 p.m. may keep the kids entertained throughout the event, but it’s the Australia’s largest mobile Ferris Wheel that will leave them in awe.

extravagant Halloween event. The stage will feature heaps of entertainment. Don’t forget the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron’s on-water displays — five hours of pure entertainment.
