Zombies will once again be taking over Hinkler Central
ONCE again on the last Thursday of October, just prior to Halloween, Hinkler Central will be taken over by zombies but there's nothing to fear - it's all for a good cause.
From 4pm the Halloween activities will commence with shoppers getting in to costume and getting their Zombie make-up done for the official Twenty14 Bundaberg Zombie Walk in support of Local Organisation Orange Thumbs and the Newro Foundation.
The announcement is great news for Orange Thumbs who raise much needed funds for people affected by brain tumours and best yet, most of the funding remains local.
The walk will start at 6.30pm and be accompanied by free family entertainment including in-centre trick or treating, free photo booth and awards for the best dressed zombies all in celebration of Halloween and Orange Thumbs Day.
"The community loved the event last year and it's certainly fantastic that we can do it all again and support a fantastic cause at the same time," Hinkler Central Marketing Manager Aaron Ng said.
Retailers within the centre also are joining in on the fun and providing trick or treaters with a safe environment to do so by allowing children dressed up to visit select stores and grab a treat.
"The centre really has come back bigger and better than ever and we want to continue to support the community and provide Bundaberg with unique, fun events," Aaron Ng added.
Orange Thumbs will also be in-centre from Thursday, October 30 to Sunday, November 2 painting shoppers thumbs orange for a gold coin donation to raise awareness of brain tumours, the affect they have on families and of course to support local families that are affected by the disease.
