Happy Halloween Weekend: Piñata bashing kids, Hawaiian fancy dress and Zombie walks in Sydney (31 Oct 2011)

Dress ups for the young and old

Sydney certainly seems to be gaining an accepting interest in Halloween each year but we're still a fair way off on how the USA goes over the top, especially when it comes to fancy dress. I fondly remember visiting Hawaii in 2010 where the main street of Waikiki became a free for all party central of 1000s of amazing costumes — still some of the best I've ever seen. A small army of five green soliders at the ATM was unbeatable followed closely by the creepy masked puppet on a tricycle from the SAW movie. This year was filled with a scary visit to a household full of kids hyped up on sugar, twirling sticks with surprising strength at a defenseless piñata in the backyard. I've never seen kids so determined to get to the lollies that they knew were inside. The Sydney Zombie Walk was also on Saturday which had an impressive turn out of a very scary and devoted entourage that brought Elizabeth Street to a stand still.

Boo — now eat me! Yummy chocolate cake.
