Where to celebrate Halloween in Gladstone

IF you'd like to get into the spirit of Halloween on Friday, here's a list of some of the homes in Gladstone that are participating.

This information has been compiled from posts on The Observer's Facebook page, and from the Gladstone Halloween page collated by Hosanna Croker, who has put in a lot of hard work building excitement about trick or treating on Friday.

There is also a lot of information on the Gladstone Halloween page about cool things to make, and photos from people who have been busy making decorations and tasty, scary treats.

You can check out the Gladstone Halloween page here.

Homes happy to have trick or treaters knock on their front door are encouraged to tie a balloon to their mailbox, and/or have their front light on.
