The venue was decorated and music was played to get the party going. Children and parents came dressed in Halloween costumes to make the place bright. Thanks to a few enthusiastic parents for a variety of Halloween themed food and drinks that refreshed us all. Almost everyone contributed to the crafty decoration and made the event more cheerful. There was a surprise game which became a highlight and every kid waited for their turn to get the hidden gift. A Halloween Picture frame was a creative way to snap pictures, making everyone pose to capture the attires and expressions!
