Tickets are also being sold at Imperial Mall on weekends from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm.
The highlight of the event will be a live performance by popular alternative rock band Estranged from Kuala Lumpur. Other live acts such as Ana and The Scene, Blue Maggie, Actual Size, The Mantra, Curtin Art and Dance Club, MYY Hustle and Oil Town Hip Hop will also be performing.
In addition, there will be food and product sales, a costume party, haunted house, Humans vs. Zombies Victory Night, screening of horror movies, trick-or-treat, as well as costume and pumpkin-carving contests. In line with the theme, those attending are encouraged to dress in Halloween costumes.
According to organising chairperson Sam Tze Mun, the event is a meaningful one as it is being held to raise funds for charity and with the attractions lined up, including the performance by Estranged, the Student Council hopes it will receive a good response.
