On October 31, the Statendam team kept guests rather busy with a lot of Halloween themed events. The day started with a pumpkin carving competition where 50 guests in various groups demonstrated their carving abilities.
The carvings were displayed later that night at the entrance of the dining room…of course under supervision of some scary doormen. In the afternoon, guests were challenged to participate in ‘scary eye ping pong’, followed by SCARY-oke, the Halloween version of Karaoke. Highlight of the day was the Monster bash in the Crow’s Nest where a Halloween competition took place for the best dress.
