Malibu Colony marks All Hallows’ Eve with traditional gathering Barbara Burke Freelance Reporter Wicked witches and silly, sashaying skeletons strolled along the streets. Howling werewolves and an entourage of fairies joined in on the fun. Tigger was there. Ditto for Winnie the Pooh, who coyly flirted with pretty princesses, as angels and a various assortment of movie stars looked on. All in attendance enjoyed three things: candy, snacks and fun. A band of mariachis entertained guests at a brightly decorated Day of the Dead event booth. Adult attendees enjoyed libations and snacks as they visited and saw a veritable parade of trick-or-treaters who darted from candy bowl to candy bowl, grinning as they compared costumes, went through the haunted house, and tried their hands at various games. At another end of the neighborhood, a country music band belted out tunes as couples danced and laughed. The perennial favorite Halloween extravaganza at Malibu Colony once again delighted attendees as children of all ages went from home to home. “Being able to trick-ortreat with young children in Malibu Colony is a fun tradition enjoyed by many families,” Greer Brath said. “I know they appreciate the safety of the street being closed to traffic and the festive family atmosphere.” The tradition dates back many years. “I’ve lived here for 60 years and my kids have been here virtually their whole lives,” Joan Allman said. “Even back in the days when they were young, kids would go from house to house in the Colony and enjoy trick-or-treating. For the last 10 years or so, the event has really ballooned into a giant thing. ... It’s not like any other place you’ve been for Halloween.” Adults had just as much fun as the children at the scary soiree. “Playing skeletons at the Fiesta of the Dead party was so much fun,” Malibuite Jackie Robbins said. Dancing the night away, many people bedecked in elaborate costumes enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, tasty sweets, conviviality and revelry.
