At the end of October and the beginning of November, Meerhoven is again dedicated to Halloween. Children and their parents can enjoy the horror event at various locations.
In various neighbourhoods, children dressed as scary creatures go past decorated houses for “trick or treat”. In addition, there are various Halloween activities at Shopping Center Terminal M and at Scouting Burgemeester Welschen.
Shopping center Terminal M
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 Terminal M will be transformed into a spooky square. The well-known Griezelbus is on the square. The doors of the Griezelbus are open between 12.30 and 17.00. Twelve children can go in with their parents at the same time. There are also various activities outside the bus. Check the website of shopping center Terminal M (in Dutch) or the activities calendar (in English) for more information.
