'Boo' light discos make a return

THINGS are expected to get scary in Griffith tonight when the Blue Light Disco makes a creepy comeback.

The Griffith Police Citizens' Youth Club (PCYC) will hold two separate Halloween-themed disco's tonight, one for primary school children in years 2 to 6 at 5pm to 7pm, and the other for high school students in years 7 to 12 from 7.30pm to 10pm.

Senior Constable Alex Davies said he hoped young people would embrace the frightening theme and dress up for the revival of the much-loved disco.

"Blue Light Discos have been going for 25 years around the state and some have been going non-stop," Senior Constable Davies said.

"I'm not sure when Griffith held its last one but when I worked in Windsor and Richmond I ran them there and they became popular again. They are run by the PCYC and it's an activity that the police are involved in

"The aim is to provide a fun and exciting night for young people.

"We will start off slow and hopefully build them up again when people realise it's a safe environment."

Senior Constable Davies said they plan to hold the discos once a month next year.

The first one for 2014 will be held in February.

Tickets are $9 and must be purchased from the door by an adult.

Youth can enjoy music provided by a DJ, a canteen, chill out room and giveaways.

Griffith kids can scare themselves silly, with prizes awarded for the most spine-chilling costume.
