Cobweb Chronicles: Inside the Best Halloween Event in Town

What a party! The 2023 Halloween event was a wonderful, magical evening! A big thank you to all the families who came out dressed up and excited!

Planning the Event

For the past two years, the local historical museum volunteers have organised a fantastic Halloween event that has been greatly appreciated.

Recently, due to various factors, they decided it was time to pass on the responsibility. Following this, a group of creative and positive parents from Nagambie Primary School, led by the wonderful Heidi Dean, formed a committee and began planning for the event. Their hard work paid off as they successfully organised a fun-filled evening that attracted nearly 200 children, including parents, grandparents, and others.


Sue West and Emily Steuart greeted everyone at the entrance and gave candy to the children as they left. Bevlea Ross, a photographer and NLCH committee member, took photos of the participants with spooky backgrounds, which she will email to all the attendees. Carole Perry greatly assisted her despite the cold weather.

Spooktacular Fun

The narrow alleyway boasted an impressive cemetery with eerie branches and tombstones. The supper room added an extra level of fright with a dark maze that included both visual and auditory elements. Inside the hall, DJ Phil created an eerie atmosphere with a smoke machine and groovy disco tunes. Additionally, there were games, a sensory challenge, and a Witches’ Spells Apothecary to keep the guests entertained.

The NLCH is humbled and proud to have facilitated an incredibly successful Halloween event. However, this would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of many amazing volunteers. The Halloween committee, consisting of Heidi Dean, Nicole Smith, Emily Steurt, and Alison Charlesworth, brought their wonderful creativity to the event. Jill Branagan from the Mechanics Institute offered an abundance of grace and support.

The patient ladies from the Op Shop were also instrumental in making the event happen. Additionally, Wes Boyle, Wes Dean, Phil Close, Bernie Higgins, Bevlea Ross, Carole Perry, and Sue West all contributed in various capacities. Their dedication and hard work made the event a great success.

Thank you all! Parents, grandparents, volunteers, helpers, supporters and visitors! What a wonderful community we are all part of!
