Spooky on Angove

ANGOVE STREET will be crammed with skeletons, ghouls and dismembered corpses later this month.

No, it’s not the venue for the next party room meeting of the Liberal government, but the street’s annual Halloween bash.

Part of the street will be closed to traffic, providing a space for kids to trick or treat.

There’ll be Halloween-themed music from local surf rockers Day of the Dead, with support from Catzilla and Simone & Girlfunkle.

The Perth Symphony is also sending along a quintet to play spooky tunes.

The free event is from 4.30pm to 8.30pm on October 31 and is run by North Perth Local, the suburb’s town team, and mostly funded by Vincent council.

Please no complaints about American imports: One of the event sponsors, Perth MP John Carey, pointed out this week that “contrary to popular opinion, Halloween isn’t a US tradition, it harks back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain”.
