Spooktacular Halloween events

Ghosts, goblins and ghouls are welcome at Camana Bay on Halloween to take part in the many family-friendly events.  

Since 2010, Spooktacular has made a name for itself among Cayman’s Halloween festivities.  

Molly Dalby, events manager at Dart Realty (Cayman) Ltd. who created the event, has enjoyed watching it grow. 

“Halloween in Camana Bay has grown with the Rotary Haunted House, Moonlight and Movies and other activities,” Dalby said. “It is really rewarding watching the Spooktacular become a big tradition in Cayman,”  

Here are the events: 

Starfish Village Harvest Camp 

A week of Halloween and fall themed arts and crafts, fun games and fountain play for children ages 3-12 at Starfish Village. Oct. 27 to 31. One full day from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. is $70. A week of halfdays from 9 a.m. to noon is $175. A week of full days is $325. Email [email protected] to register. 

Moonlight and Movies Halloween Series 

From Oct. 28 through Nov. 1, Gardenia Court will be the venue for a series of spooky flicks; “The Addams Family” on Oct. 28 at 7 p.m., “ET: The Extra Terrestrial” on Oct. 29 at 7 p.m., “Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit” on Oct. 30 at 7 p.m., and “The Ring” on Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. On Nov. 1, there will be three screenings; “It’s the Great Pumpkin” at 6 p.m., “Coraline” at 6:30 p.m. and “Men in Black” at 8 p.m. 

Haunted House of Horrors 

All proceeds benefit charities supported by the Rotary Club, which sponsors the event, this year in partnership with Lions Productions. Admission is $10 and children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult. The Haunted House of Horrors is open Oct. 30 to Nov. 1 from 6:30 p.m. to 10.30 p.m. in The Crescent next to Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink. 

“Although all the features inside the haunted house will remain a surprise, you can rest assured that with all of the custom-made props and intricate installation, it will be as spooky and scary as ever,” said Dalby. 

Halloween Spooktacular 

Children are invited to trick or treat throughout Camana Bay’s Town Centre between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Nov. 1. Crafts can also be enjoyed as well as a Pumpkin Patch. A Spooky Creature Double Feature will be screened and a Monster Mash Bash allows youngsters to dance into the evening. 

A Monster Lab is also on hand to entertain and “terrify.” It is an interactive kid-friendly component of Spooktacular.  

“This year it will be taking on the form of a Mummy Tomb, where kids can reach inside spooky concealed boxes containing all the creepy and crawly things of Halloween,” Dalby said.
