Dress in your spookiest costume and head over to the RIC Halloweeen Party. They are throwing a party in honour of the new batch of freshers, but the event is also open to the public. Havelock City, #324, Havelock Road, Colombo 5.
Saturday, October 31
This weekend, the folks from Musicmatters will play you some delightful jazz at the Barefoot Gallery right before the Rugby World cup comes on. Barefoot Cafe, 704, Galle Road, Colombo 3.
Kama Colombo is celebrating Halloween. Get into your Halloween costume (dressed as your favourite celebrity), and drop in for a party at Kama. Kama Colombo, 31 Horton Place, Colombo 7.
Rock Saturday is taking things a notch higher this time — the show will be on board the Logos Ship. That's the good news. The bad news is that you can only get on board if you get yourself a pass, and there are only 350 of them. If you're looking for Christian rock events, don't miss this event. The Logos Ship – Colombo Harbour.
