Meanwhile from Mooloolaba to Mountain Creek people reported incidents of Halloween vandalism on Facebook, from eggs and rocks being thrown at cars to bins being knocked over.
"(It was) so close to the cars it sounded like an animal hitting the car," Jayne Hodkinson said.
"Hope their parents find out and punish them, kids need to realise how dangerous it is to throw things at cars."
One woman reported a knife-wielding clown sighting in Bli Bli.
"My partner got stopped by a clown with a knife last night on his way home from work," Erin D'Arcy said.
