Spooky shenanigans come to the Horsefair shopping centre at Wisbech with two hours of dress up fun and frivolity in the town centre.

On Friday October 31 from 3pm to 5pm there will be a trick or treat event.

Head to the centre’s information room where youngsters can collect a guide along with their first treat and a collection bag.

Then make your way around using the creepy map that shows businesses which are handing out free trick or treat goodies.

There will be free haunted fun including balloon modelling, a fairground ride and climbing spider mountain.

Fenland Exotics will be on hand with their creepy creatures in the front window of Argos and any under 15’s, accompanied by an adult, that arrive in fancy dress can enter a best costume competition judged by the Mayor of Wisbech outside the Co-op at 4pm.

Centre manager of the Horsefair, Kevin Smith, commented: “Our Halloween event is always very popular. We want to offer youngsters a safe environment to Trick or Treat in, instead of them going out at night.
