The spirits were high and the excitement was palpable on the eve of Halloween as The Pakubuwono Menteng, a prominent residential haven in the heart of the city, transformed its outdoor area in front of the Solarium into a ghostly extravaganza. The sun-drenched afternoon on Sunday, October 29th, 2023, witnessed a spine-tingling Halloween event that brought families together for an unforgettable day of laughter, thrills, and scary delights.
Frightful Festivities Unleashed
The day kicked off at 3:00 PM with re-registration, ensuring that the little ghouls and witches received their name tags. For those who arrived unregistered, manual name tags were distributed to make sure no one missed out on the spooky fun. To make it even sweeter, every registered child received a goodie bag upon arrival.
Then, our master of ceremony welcomed all the tenants, setting the stage for a bewitching day ahead. The ice-breaking session brought together the children for a spine-chilling Halloween dance, engaging activities, and brain-teasing trivia.
