Trick or Treat tradition in the Philippines is very rare and it’s surprising and exciting to know that there is one place in Quezon City that embraces this yearly.
Inside the quaint yet thriving community of Ayala Ferndale, homeowners were delightful to participate in this year “NACOCOTAKOT Trick or Treat” Halloween celebration. Children and toddlers got to participate in the Coco-inspired theme this year were some of them were dressed in costumes popularized by Coco characters.
For those who did not know, Coco is a hit 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy film following a 12-year old boy named Miguel who is accidentally transported to the Land of the Dead, where he seeks the help of his deceased musician great-great-grandfather to return to him his family among the living.
“This year we want it to be a bit lighter because in the past years there are several children who feel the decor and characters, so I think this day is for the children and it may be best if we do it lighter. Let’s introduce characters that the children want so they will be more comfortable. And when I saw them now, I think they’re happy,” said Tessie Celestina Howard, Chairman of Events Committee when I asked her about this year’s concept.
Apparently, their past Halloween trick or Treat were gory and scary, so the committee decided to make it lighter and fun this year. And Coco is the perfect theme for this occasion.
The innovative layout of Ayala Ferndale fosters a harmonious relationship among residents as it allows neighbors to interact in close quarters while maintaining their valued privacy.
Ferndale is a short drive away from top universities and schools like the University of the Philippines, Ateneo De Manila University, and Miriam College. It is also very near in churches, medical centers, malls, and other retail establishments.
