Next to Christmas—and probably her birthday, Halloween is the most exciting time of the year for McKenzie (and for us too!). It’s when she gets to dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating and join fun parties. It is a fun, festive holiday that brings a lot of laughs—and candies, and nobody is more excited to get everyone into the Halloween spirit than McKenzie's favorite TV channel for kids- Nickelodeon.
We are getting ready to have a frightfully good time as Nick will take us on a ghostly adventure with its spooktacular Halloween event, Takotown: Twisted Tales. This year, Nickelodeon gives the celebration a fun Pinoy flavor by bringing in some of the most notorious Philippine mythical creatures to join the party. Let's rub elbows with the friendly neighborhood kapre (who says they only hang out on balete trees?), the good ol’ white lady (it gets boring in deserted streets, waiting for cars to pass by, you know), and the tiny little duwendes (they can’t wait to burst out of those mounds sitting in your backyard!).
You too can discover the mysteries of Takotown: Twisted Tales on October 31 at Hall 3 of the SMX Convention Center Manila, and hang out with the scary—but friendly underworld creatures from 2pm to 6pm. Nickelodeon is sure to pull out all the stops to make your adventure totally unforgettable.
Enjoy the interactive activities on ground and the exciting giveaways, from the trick-or-treat baskets filled with goodies from the event sponsors, to stage games, amazing performances, game booths, meet-and-greet with Nickelodeon characters, and the ultimate Halo-Halo-ween costume contest. So don’t forget to come in your Halloween best to bring home the coolest prizes!
If you’re up for a spooky challenge, you can also enter the “Gubat ng Lagim” and brave the misty forest with all its creepy creatures and terrifying tombstones scattered all over the place. It’s a great way test your navigation skills, and of course your courage. Let’s see if you can find your way out (cue evil laugh). Don’t worry, a photo wall is waiting for you at the other end of the forest to immortalize your horror—we mean your bravery.
Now if you’re faint hearted, then we suggest you stick to the Toy Kingdom’s “Balon ng Undin.” Undin might make an appearance, but not to pull you in or eat you, but to give candies to those who are able to summon the courage to take a peek inside.
But of course, to get into Takotown, you’re going to need a ticket. So if you’re 7-10 years old, log on to Nick-Asia.com to score tickets for you and your family and friends. Register online and answer the question, “What is the scariest story you’ve heard of?” 50 kids with the best answers get four tickets each! Remember that the deadline for submitting entries is on October 25 at 6pm, so hurry and tell us your scary story now!
We can’t wait too see you there for some friendly Halloween fun! It’s going to be so much fun!
