Halloween falls on a Monday this year, so many places are celebrating on Saturday. Let’s see what you can do this weekend to get into the Halloween spirit!
Friday, October, 28th
OK Gwangju, it’s time to do the time warp again! After last year’s successful screening of the 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, organizers have decided to do it again this year. Dress up as your favorite character, and make sure to bring some props so you can get the full experience. The film will be shown at The First Alleyway downtown, and is hosted by the animal support group, Justice for Jindos. For more details about the event, please go to the Facebook page here. The film will start at 9 p.m.
Saturday, October, 29th
This weekend’s art class will have a Halloween theme as well. The class will cover makeup tricks and skills that will make you a hit at all the parties this weekend. The class runs from 12:30 until 3, and the fee is only 10,000 won. The class will be led by special guest instructor, Gabriellle Zilla (one of the organizers of Synergy). For more information about the class, click on the link for their Facebook page. For directions to the GIC (where the classes are held), please go to their website. This is a special class so spaces will be limited.
Are you looking for a fun event for the whole family this weekend? Well the Global Families of Gwangju (GFOG) group have just the answer for you-their 5th annual Halloween party. There will be games, crafts, and especially candy for the kids to enjoy. Advance tickets are available (deadline is Friday at 8 p.m.) so you can save yourself a little money-for more candy! It all starts at the Gwangju Foreign School at 1 p.m. Did I mention that there’s going to be candy there? For more details and directions to the event, please go to GFOG’s Facebook page. Candy!
Hey Bill, is Loft 28 having a Halloween party this weekend? Do vampires feast on human blood? Of course Loft 28 is having a Halloween party this weekend! There is no cover so head on over for drink specials, free shot periods, and prizes for best costume, as well as dancing. For more information, please go to their Facebook page.
There are a lot of Halloween parties going on this weekend, but none of them have been going for as long as Speakeasy’s has. That’s rights folks, it’s the party you’ve been waiting for, the one that everybody has told you about, Speakeasy’s 10th annual Halloween party! You’re costumes better be on fleek (as the kids say!) if you want to win great prizes. Do I have to tell you that there will be fantastic drink specials? OK, there will be fantastic drink specials! All the fun begins at 8 p.m. For more details, check out the Facebook event page.
