SYDNEY -- The NSW town of Lithgow is gearing up for its annual Halloween festival, with the regional centre's main shopping strip set to transform into a world of monsters, ghouls, ghosts and even creepy clowns.
The nightmarish festivities are set to kick off at 4pm, including a trick or treat trail and a night-time concert.

Thousands of people are expected to turn out for the event, which is running for its third year.
The event has previously been hailed as one of the most successful community street parties in regional Australia.
