Lithgow Halloween ‘MC’
I’m thrilled to be coming back to Lithgow Halloween to take on the role of The Ring Master again, says veteran Blue Mountains performer Timothy Hyde.
I’ll be running the events on the Cook St Plaza Stage, introducing the acts and running the Best Dressed Competition.
Lynda and I had a great time there last year, meeting some wonderful colourful characters. What we really loved was how it was an “all ages event,” very family friendly and how 95% of the people made an effort to dress up in some way! We can’t wait to do it again! Oh, and the train! That looked great, wish we had time to do the trip but it’s such a busy night on the street.
Join in the Street Parade with the Samba Trombada drumming band. You can join as a group or just yourself and dance your way along Main Street to the official opening of the Lithgow Halloween festival.
From Pioneer Park Main Street Lithgow, near the Bridge street intersection to Cook Street Plaza.
