Who says Halloween has to be scary, when it can also be fun and merry!

Like many of TIC’s fun events, Halloween was one of them this year. On the 1st of November TIC arranged a kids event at the Heyhoef Reeshof. Every year the Heyhoef organises a Halloween lantern parade night with music and some fun activities including tricks and treats for the kids.

The TIC kids arrived at the Heyhoef dressed in cute and cool outfits. We had a pirate, a policeman, a knight, a fairy princess and three witches. The kids then got their first treat, a goody bag from TIC with different kinds of candy, or snoepjes, as they call it in Dutch. The weather was just nice for the time of the year and we were all ready to join the lantern parade except some of the kids didn’t have their lanterns yet. Thanks to one of our TIC members who knew where to find them, everyone soon had a lantern. As everyone was free to go their own way and enjoy the evening, some of our members went off to join the parade while the rest of us decided to just watch the parade walk by.

The Heyhoef shopping center was turned into a street theater. There were small tents where you could get a temporary tattoo or a face painting, hair makeover offer (frizzy hair), photographs taken, discounted stuffs from the stores at the Heyhoef and free cotton candy. There was also some whimsical, steampunk-inspired puppet carts. The music was no halloween music but country western and a few Beatles songs. But nevertheless it was a festive and lively atmosphere.

The lights, the decorations, the costumes, all the fun and laughter and the kids enjoying themselves is all you need to make a great TICKids event. Therefore stay tuned for the next TICKids event coming up next month, 3rd of December: the Sinterklaas event!
