Pilbara residents should get ready for fright night as horror-lovers prepare to celebrate Halloween tonight at several events around the region or with a round of trick-or-treating.

In Karratha, several properties have been transformed into haunted houses for community members to visit for a good scare.

One of the biggest is in Millars Well’s Rouse Court, where for a sixth year, the Wright and Kittle families will host a house of horrors walk-through in a scary spectacle that usually draws about 600 people.

Resident Josie Kittle said the tradition had started as a nod to her husband’s American culture and had got ten scarier over time.

“It’s something different that’s also a lot of fun for the whole family,” she said of celebrating Halloween.

In Dampier, the town bowling club is set to host an inaugural pumpkin-carving competition where children can come dressed up in their best Halloween costumes and vote on the best pumpkin.

Paraburdoo residents will be treated to a themed light show, Halloween Spooktacular: A Night of Terror at the Ashburton Avenue property of the Pilbara Lights crew. Gold coin donations on entry will go to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Paraburdoo Primary School will host a Halloween Disco at the school where students can win a prize for best dressed and scariest costume.

Several Exmouth venues including Froth Craft Brewery and the Beach Shack will host Halloween-themed events this Friday night.
