Halloween Volkswagen vans on display by Bayside Kombi Kruisers at Raby Bay

THE Raby Bay foreshore will be teeming with decked-out VW vans in celebration of the spooky season on Halloween night.

Bayside Kombi Kruisers will showcase 13 vans kit out from the rims to the roof in scary paraphernalia, parked at the foreshore from 5.30pm.

Group president Angela Carr said it was the first year the event was being run and visitors could expect ghosts, ghouls and all manner of scary sights.

"The idea came from members that like to get involved with Halloween but live on quiet streets, dress their houses up and then don't get many door knockers," she said.

"We thought it would be fun to dress up the Kombis and have a bit of fun with the locals."

She said passers-by could vote on the best dressed bus, and members would be on hand to give out lollies to trick-or-treaters.

"I'm sure there's going to be a grim reaper knocking around, a few zombies and our roof racks fit a coffin perfectly," she said.

It will be just one of many spooky events taking place in the Redlands around Halloween, with schools and community groups among those getting into the spirit.

A spooky after school crafts session will be held at the Capalaba library on October 31, while the Redlands Centre for Women will host a themed trivia night on October 26.
