3. Halloween can be very friendly to our city. too!! Go Plogging this Halloween. Ploggiing is a combination of jogging and raising environmental awareness through collecting litter in the city.

Runners will meet up at Central Pier at 7pm on October 31st. Let’s make Halloween an unBOOlivably good with fitness and cleaning up rubbish. Try this creative way to enjoy the day.
4. Feel like staying away from the crowded and rest at home? Enjoy some gory movies from Netflix or YouTube can also be a lazy way to enjoy the night. Chips and coke, here you are. Who says Halloween can’t be a little bit quiet?
With so many amazing options to celebrate Halloween you better get ready to look as horrible as you can! Here are some suggestions about where can you get great costumes from. And, some places to get sweet treats for the little monsters trying to trick you.
WHERE TO GET COSTUMES & TREATS:
On the Island,Pottinger Street & Wan Chai Market, like always, are go-to places to do a quick costume shopping. We love the bizarre little props available here! Another cool place to shop is the Stanley Market. The shops here truly bask in their quirky glory during the Halloween season.
For those looking to buy a costume in Kowloon, visit Choi Chi Gift Shop in Mong Kok. This store will genuinely up your spook quotient. It has costume sets as well as other props and accessories to customize your own outfit. Options available for kids and adults. If spending money on purchasing a new costume every year is not something you appreciate, you can rent it from Fortune Costume in Tsim Sha Tsui. It offers a wide-ranged collection of eccentric costumes and wigs, props and masks to go along. Both these stores have a Facebook Page, search them for more information.
However, the best get-up is the one with a personal touch that makes it different from the rest. Take this opportunity to unleash your creativity and personalize the Halloween costume. It’s also a great activity to do with the kids. With this they will certainly be more excited for the occasion. You can find props like blank masks of different shapes to paint on, fabric markers and paints to redesign your costume and face painting tools too at Artland and CN Square. Artland is located at Lockhart Road and CN Square outlets are at 3 different locations; Nathan Road, North Point and Tsuen Wan.
Lastly, the treats! While all kinds of candies, chocolates and treats can make people happy, you should try to get some special Halloween-themed candies to add to the fun. Sweet World in Central is a candy heaven with treats wrapped in the most ghostly packaging. Papabubble at Causeway Bay too offers a great collection of Halloween candies in October.
One of our favorites is Hong Kong’s first and only tradition British Sweet Shop, Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe in Central and Mong Kok.
If you are having a party, we believe it would be best to contact the local homegrown cake & pastry businesses in Hong Kong to order customized Halloween-theme treats. It promotes local business and you can have some delicious baked sweets!
Also, for those who just wish to pick sweet stuff up at the last minute, Wellcome stores have put up a special Halloween candy table along with some adorably creepy accessories and costumes for the kids.
With all the above we hope to have our readers covered for a great Halloween. We wish all our LocalHooders a fun filled, spooktacular Halloween!! Again, do let us know if this article helped make your experience smooth and horrifying!
