Ghosts and monsters have already been sighted at various armies’ events… The spooky season is upon us, what plans do the armies have for this year’s Halloween festivities?
A holiday to dress up and consume mountains of candy, Halloween proves to be a popular time of year for Club Penguin Armies as well. Celebrated each year on the last day of October, many armies mirror the children on the streets, as they dress up their penguins and join their fellow army members for a themed event.
Only two years ago CP Army Hub hosted the beloved Halloween-themed Fright or Fight Tournament, in which seven Major and seven S/M armies took part. The final winners were the Rebel Penguin Federation in the Major bracket and Pizza Federation in the S/M. Sadly, the tournament did not repeat its success in 2021, as the league had shut down by Halloween time.
Although the army community has been deprived of a Halloween tournament post-FoF, Halloween events still seem to be a focus for many. Leading up to the spooky season, many armies have already dressed up as ghosts, clowns, or even in Harry Potter-inspired costumes.
To investigate this further, Club Penguin Armies reached out to current army leaders to find out more about their Halloween plans.

Link, Rebel Commander: So just like every year for the entire month of October we re-brand into something Halloween-y or spooky. This year we went with Gravity Falls so server banner/icon/channels were changed to fit the theme of Gravity Falls. We also released a character quiz in which you can get assigned a character from the series and that’s your main role for the entire month. And of course we’ve been having halloween and Gravity Falls events a couple times each week. On top of that we have a special week for the last week of October, a horror fashion week. Each event every day will be a new variation of past events to keep things exciting and it will end with a big Halloween Homecoming. We got a lot of things planned like new roles, daily challenges, some giveaways as well, as well as the big event mentioned earlier which in itself will have some surprises as well. So yeah, gonna be a hopefully fun end to a fun month.
