Pics: Sables’ Halloween event scares the socks off kids and adults alike

Hundreds of children and adults celebrated Halloween, scary style at the weekend and the annual fright night event, hosted at Umhlali Country Club was even more Spook-tacular than ever. 

Proceeds went to Sables Creatures – which rescues neglected animals and provides food and medical treatment when needed.

Spooky, scary and ghoulish! Dee Allen, Lee Stander, Melanie St Clair-Mulley and Samantha Dyer.

Operating mostly in poverty-stricken areas of KwaDukuza, they look after up to 500 animals in a single outreach programme.

Scary! The black-out maze of horrors tested everyone’s fear limit.

The pro-life rescue organisation has hit tough times recently as they were unable to hold vital fundraisers under lockdown regulations. 

This year’s Spooktacular catered for the kids and included a best dressed competition.

First prize winner in the fancy dress competition went to Jordan Singh posing with Diek Van Held

Not for the faint hearted, the scariest local attraction was the black-out maze of horrors that tested everyone’s fear limit.

Volunteering for scare duty at the black-out maze of horrors is Samantha Dyer.

The 2-day event, with assistance from sponsors, saw teens and adults alike dressed in spooky, scary and ghoulish attire! 

Sables Creatures founder Seema Duwarkah extended her thanks to the community for their support during lockdown.

Enjoying the evenings attractions are the three little witches, Sophie and Amy Witthoft and Stella Fourie.

“If it were not for the support we received, we would not have been able to pay our bills and reopen our doors. I have managed to sterilise, feed, treat and help hundreds of animals since through this support,” she said.
