Halloween with Sanrio at Ocean Park Hong Kong

We just had to tell you about this awesome event that no doubt will draw most fans of kawaii things, living in Hong Kong!  This year, Sanrio has partnered with one of the largest theme parks in the city to celebrate Halloween!  In past years, Ocean Park Hong Kong has held the largest Halloween events in Asia, so we can easily imagine that this Hello-ween Fest will be lots of fun!

The popular Sanrio characters we all know so well will be there to meet visitors, and join in some activities mainly designed for kids.  Of course, they are all dressed up in exclusive Halloween costumes!  There is also a Sanrio themed restaurant, where incredibly cute and elaborate Halloween treats featuring their much loved characters will be served.

This first-ever Sanrio Halloween party at Ocean Park is already under way, and the premises are full of decorations and displays inspired by Hello Kitty, Kuromi, Gudetama, Pompompurin etc.  We found some great pictures of the event, and we simply had to share them with you! Take a look at the images below, and let us know which you liked best!
