Trick or treat yourself to an incredible week of Halloween festivities, with a number of bars in Kuala Lumpur organising their own parties, to more kid-friendly activities with the ‘boo’s’ at a minimum, like Jump Street’s all-day Neon bash. Halloween aside, the YOLO Run 2019 also takes place this week at Padang Merbok, and there’s a two-day art workshop open to all inspiring artists. More details below:

You know that feeling when you jump back in fright? Jump up, jump up and get down at Jump Street’s annual Halloween bash, this year with a funky neon theme. Both adults and children are invited to enjoy a day of games, activities, lucky draw prizes and performances. Come dressed up (comfortably, of course) and you might just be awarded Jump Street’s ‘Best Halloween Costume 2019’.
This two-day workshop is a hands-on introduction to public art, a multidisciplinary art form for artists and communities. Day 1 focuses on idea development, while participants will get to create their projects on Day 2, ending with a presentation and discussion. The workshop will be conducted by Aisyah Baharuddin, co-founder of art initiative Tindakan Gerak Asuh (T.I.G.A) and Lim Soo Ngee, senior lecturer at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts Singapore. Register ASAP because seats are limited. The event takes place from 10am-6pm on both days.
Taking the concept of YOLO to heart, this run aims to encourage runners to break free of any societal expectations and simply… run. Organisers also encourage participants to fix their vision on the finishing line as they celebrate life. The runs are divided into three categories; 2.5km, 5km and 10km. Children accompanied by adults are also welcome to partake in the run.
Oh, what a night! Sunway Lagoon’s popular Nights of Fright is back for its seventh year, taking place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 7.30pm to 11.30pm. The setup features eight haunted houses, one haunted theatre, two scare zones, 11 thrilling rides and two show stages. One night here may not even be enough to cover all grounds, so check it out fast and make plans accordingly.
