Halloween at Xavierville Phase2

We had a great time today (24th October) at the Halloween / Trick-or-Treat Celebrations at our neighborhood organized by the Xavierville Phase2 Homeowners’ Association (XHA) Organizing Committee!

Halloween-Greeting

Every year the XHA would always hold this Halloween Party –especially for kids aged 3-13– but this year it was made quite special because of the extraordinarily huge number of kids that came: early estimates placed it at 140-150 kids (not including parents, guardians, or ‘adults pretending to be kids’…like myself :-/ ).

By 2pm, we already saw the kids coming in (empty lot, 20 Alvero Street) in droves…and in beautifully and amazingly crafted COSTUMES –CONGRATS, KIDS! ehem, parents pala 😉 — excited to participate and have fun.  On entering, children were treated to a magical show or to the “upper stage” for a photo shoot*.

We had GAMES and lots of fun!  We had two rounds of MUSICAL CHAIRS (the little ones couldn’t wait for their turn & were already queuing up for the 2nd round!), as well as Newspaper Dance and Stop Dance… Boy, were these kids great game-players! In between was the eating, of course.

Needless to say, the most-awaited was the TRICK or TREAT which followed immediately afterward: packs of kids trekked, with pumpkin pails in tow, to the various households that signed up for giving away those treats (how about tricks?) much awaited by the kids!
