Over the weekend of October 27-28, the Shanghai community came together to enjoy the spooky season with activities and games for all.
To celebrate Halloween, Urban Family teamed up with Shanghai ARCHWALK to create a ghoulishly-perfect family event. It included a range of activities, costume parades and musical performances, and was a weekend for children to cherish.
To kick off the festivities, kids received a candy bag on arrival. Then, with spirits high, the action continued with an exhilarating skateboard performance by ICONX.
Families were swept up in the interactive games, pumpkin carving and apple bobbing competitions. They also took the time to stroll around the market bazaar and meet many Shanghai-based companies offering services to families. Here they enjoyed activities, such as sand painting, ring tossing and a claw machine.
The entertainment continued with students from LiaoYuan International School displaying their musical talents. This was followed by a parade, where kids showed off their creative and whacky costumes as they went trick-or-treating around Shanghai ARCHWALK.
A glee performance by SUIS Gubei students had the crowd thoroughly captivated and singing along, and their funky and spooky costumes had the younger kids begging for photos with their favorite characters. And, much to their delight, the child voted best costume of the day received tickets to the award-winning Australian show, Tap Dogs.
Let’s not forget all the prizes that were awarded over the weekend! Kids walked away with gift bags that included plush toys, customized smartphone cases and accessories, supplied by KERON International Relocation & Movers. A generous supply of coupons to some of the top family-friendly venues around town were given away.
The weekend was a tremendous success, with over 5,000 children and parents attending the event. As the mall emptied, happy faces were seen on all children who attended the Urban Family Kids Halloween Weekend.
Thank you to the Shanghai community for your continuing support, and Happy Halloween!
