Come 2 November, the courtyard and restaurant of The Barnesbury will be transformed into a haunted haven for spooky specters from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. when The Barnesbury hosts its first and Colombo’s only family friendly Halloween Carnival this weekend. The brain child of the Halloween Carnival is the duo behind The Barnesbury; Shiyam and Hafsa. Since Halloween isn’t celebrated on a grand scale in Colombo, the couple wanted this to be a unique and exciting upscale family friendly carnival which offered a Halloween experience unlike any in Colombo. The event which was inspired by their 3-year-old son Adhil, blends the excitement and fun of activities with the ambience and feel of family friendly carnival replete with goodies and free food. There are no hidden or extra charges for any of the activities and the buffet is all inclusive with the ticket. Upon entrance to the Halloween Carnival, guests will be entertained by illusionists and contortionists. There will also be a Halloween Photo Studio, Spooky Bouncy Castles, Halloween Nail Art, Train rides and much more. Guests with courage may enter the terrifying haunted hallway. It will be a visual feast for the eyes as each guest will have a unique and exciting experience. The bungee run and the table air ball carnival game will both be launched for the first time in Sri Lanka at this Halloween carnival. For those who are looking to spend quality time with their kids outdoors, tickets are on sale at The Barnesbury, No 91 Barnes Place, Colombo 07 and are priced at Rs. 3,000 (for 1 adult + 1 child).  Alternatively you may also purchase a ticket for one adult priced at Rs. 2,000 or ticket for one child priced at Rs. 2,000.
