Trick or Treat Little Stanley Street 2019
Eat pumpkin gnocchi, drink Halloween-themed cocktails and pick up a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch.
A Halloween without pumpkin is no Halloween at all, so South Bank's Little Stanley Street is going all out. As part of Trick or Treat Little Stanley Street on Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26, it's setting up a pumpkin patch. After you pick the perfect orange vegetable, you can take it home with you — for decoration as it is, or for carving into a jack-o-lantern — all for a gold coin donation.
Even better: that cash will be donated to Queensland Children's Hospital, so your spooky fun will help sick kids. But that's not all this event has to offer, especially if the occasion makes you hungry. Go trick or treating along the roadway, filling your complimentary bag with goodies. Or, settle in at one of the many eateries along the South Bank stretch and enjoy a meal to match the mood.
A heap of bars and restaurants will be getting into the Halloween spirit, whether you're keen on a Bloody Eyeball Margarita from Hop & Pickle or a Candied Apple Cinnamon Pie cocktail from Mucho Mexicano. Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers will be doing pumpkin gnocchi served out of a pumpkin, while Ahmet's will be serving up roast pumpkin pide with red onion, feta, mozzarella, sea salt and garlic.
Running from 5–8pm on both days, this is a family-friendly affair, so expect plenty of little trick-or-treaters. Of course, filling a lolly bag is just as enticing for kidults — and getting cosy at one of South Bank's bars afterwards is a thoroughly adult way to cap off the evening.
Attendance is free, but if you're keen to head along, registering in advance is recommended.
