As darkness fell on Saturday, April 27th, Laidley Showgrounds transformed into a chilling and exhilarating spectacle as the Village of the Doom made its spine-tingling return.

The spooky lover’s event is held on the date when the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest, celebrating all things creepy and macabre with a tongue-in-cheek view of horror.

The night featured ‘almost live’ entertainment from Drace the Magician, who performed a mesmerising razor blade swallowing and knife-throwing act.

Dance group Move and Grove from Gatton opened the night with a memorable performance of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, with voice contestant Sellma Soul getting the whole crowd amused with their highly engaging performance.

Prometheus and Piper completed a dazzling fire twirler performance that wowed the crowd.

There were plenty of niche and fun competitions on the night, with a best witches’ cackle an audience favourite.

The night featured plenty of amazing dress-ups, and a 1930s-themed speakeasy was a hidden gem for attendees to discover.
