WOX 2013 Halloween Party
The 8th WOX Halloween Party is slated to kick off at the Fountain Square by the seafront in Xiamen’s Haiwan Park (the same as last year) on the night of October 31st. 
Halloween is about more than just the traditional tricks and treats – dressing up in a creative, well-executed costume adds to the fun of Halloween and can definitely make you the talk of the night.

Some prefer to make their Halloween party costume on their own. For those who do not want to stitch a costume or have no time to do so, WOX has gathered information on several venues and shops in Xiamen that sell costumes for the occasion.
