Free youth 'pink light' fluoro dance party
A free youth "pink light" fluoro dance party will be held from 6pm to 10pm for 12 to 17 year old "Rainbow Youth" on Friday, September 30, at the PCYC in Osborne Ave, Umina, as part of the Coastal Twist Festival.
"HallowQween is a ultra-violet horror-themed dance party where we can dress to express, bring a mate or a date or come on your own and meet new friends," said festival creative director Ms Glitta Supernova.
"Spend the night celebrating with other beautiful rainbow youth- folk and friends.
"Dance the night away and bust some sickening moves as we connect on the dance floor with a like-minded youth community.
"This is a safe space to be you.
"Everyone 12 to 17 is welcome."
The alcohol-free event includes free pizza, soft drinks and juices.
A make-up booth "for spooky transformations" and spaces to get changed into costume will be available.
Youth workers will be available to make sure everyone has a safe and supported experience.
Strict rules will be enforced ensuring the party is drug, smoke and alcohol-free, and that all volunteers and staff comply with child safety laws and checks.
Parents may drop off and pick up out front or hang out in the "distant parent zone".
Admission is free, but participants must have booked a ticket at https://coastaltwist.org.au/event/free-halloqween/
"Because there are only a limited number of free tickets, you are only able to get one at a time," said Ms Supernova.
"If your mates want to come along, share the link and make sure they have their ticket for entry."
