ST PHOTO: CHEW SENG KIM

One of Singapore's oldest swimming clubs will be given a ghastly makeover today, complete with a "haunted" house.

The 107-year-old Chinese Swimming Club is inviting adults and children to enjoy a day of Halloween fun. It will be holding a Halloween-themed open house and charity bazaar today at its Amber Road premises.

From 11am to 9pm, members of the public can treat themselves to Halloween-themed snacks, pose for pictures at a dress-up photo booth and shop at a retail bazaar.

There will also be a cosplay competition. Charity booth coupons will be available at the front office and arrival pavilion lobby.

Proceeds from selected charity booths and the "haunted" house will go to the President's Challenge 2016.

Admission is free.
