Fun Halloween night in the forest

Nov 1, 2013 | Views: 115

Halloween is Rinpoche’s favorite holiday. As a child growing up in America, Rinpoche always looked forward to Halloween, to dress up as different characters and go Trick-or-Treating with his cousins…

Recently, Rinpoche has been in America for a few weeks and spent Halloween in the Halloween Capital of the World, Salem, Massachusetts. Salem hosted many different paranormal-related events, and many were dressed up for the occasion. Rinpoche was very pleased to have the opportunity to celebrate Halloween in Salem, and sent many Halloween greeting cards and gifts to his students in Malaysia.

A few days before Halloween, Pastor Jean Ai and Pastor Moh Mei decided to host our inaugural Haunted Halloween party at the Kechara Forest Retreat. With limited budget and time, a small group of Kecharians got together to transform Dukkar Apartments into a haunted, abandoned dungeon…

Food, decoration, activities and invitations were prepared in just two and a half days! With minimal funds, this was not an easy task but with their creativity, they successfully transformed Dukkar Apartments into a haunted house!

Around 70 to 80 guests joined us to celebrate Halloween at KFR with amazing costumes, some dressed up as zombies and witches, some as ghosts, vampires, and butcher clowns… They were all taken on a haunted tour, 10 at a time… followed by a Halloween-themed dinner, designed by our guest chef, Max!

Both scary haunted house crew and scared participants enjoyed the creative Halloween party in the forest! We are looking forward to next year’s Halloween…

Here’s the video:
