Halloween is no sombre occasion at East Street shop
GHASTLY witches and creepy cobwebs, Halloween is in full swing on Rockhampton's East St as the Happy Herb Shop dons its finest spooky attire.
The Happy Herb Shop has been open for two years, and each year its Halloween celebrations seem to get bigger and better.
According to the store's associate Joby Finlay, Halloween is becoming increasingly popular.
Joby said the community response was immensely positive, and particularly fun for kids.
They see an increase in business at this time each year, all thanks to the spooky image their decorations spread to the community.
"It's such a happy and fun time of year," Joby said.
"I love seeing the smile on everyone's faces, it's a bit of fun."
While the euphoric mood surrounding Halloween celebrations is a far cry from its death-themed origins in Celtic times, the Happy Herb Shop wants to expand on its more contemporary image with today's Halloween Fun Day in store.
"All are welcome, drop by to try some of our herbal punches or some lollies for the kids," Joby said.
