On the night of 31st October 2013, we set out to celebrate Halloween like never before with more than 350 residents taking part. It was Kent Vale’s inaugural Halloween “Trick or Treat” event. Every child who registered for the event received a candy starter kit and a “goodie” bag sponsored by 4D Adventure land, Sentosa. This event was initiated by Office of Housing Services Marketing team but we would like to say that this event was organized by everyone in Kent Vale. The residents’ participation and spirit was the key in making the kids and parents happy on this very “spooky” night.
More than 200 kids and 150 parents were dressed in costumes and everyone came promptly at 6.15pm to the Verandah for the costume parade. To the music of Lady Gaga’s applause, the residents paraded to the carpark and back.
Around 6.45pm, the trail guides from OHS grouped the little “ghouls” into groups of ten and led them to the apartments who kindly volunteered to give away candies.
More than 70 homes took part and they decorated their front doors in Halloween theme. The kids were “thrilled” that some of them wanted to go back for a second tour of the trail.
We also looked out for Best Dressed participants and after much deliberation by the marketing team, we manage to select a few winners for best dress and we prepared some candies and chocolates as gifts.
