Spooky fun plans
New Hallowe’en party planned by local committee
The Wellmeadow in Blairgowrie is the venue for the town’s latest community event - a celebration of all things spooky to mark Hallowe’en.
There will be market stalls, inflatables and traditional Hallowe’en games such as dooking for apples for youngsters at the event, which will take place on Saturday,October 28, during the afternoon.
The event is free and is being organised by the team behind the hugely successful Braemar Day festivities.
And although the Braemar Day banner above Allan Street was taken down by volunteers last week, the bunting will be staying up for this latest big event in Blair’s calender.
Kathryn McLagan is on the Blairgowrie and Rattray Braemar Association organising committee.
Watching the banner being taken down, she explained: “This is the first time we are trying this but we thought we should try something.
“It will be a similar format to Braemar Day, in that we’ll have market stalls for clubs and organisations who want to raise funds, and for local crafters and producers.
“There’ll be inflatables and food vendors too.
“Everything will have a Hallowe’en theme, with toffee apples and traditional Hallowe’en games such as dooking for apples and treacle pancakes.
“People don’t go guising anymore and we thought we could do something to give families something to do around Hallowe’en - Braemar Night is so important in terms of making memories for kids and Hallowe’en used to be like that in the town.
“The Wellmeadow is such a great space for events and this will be a chance to see it in a different light - a spooky light!
“So put the date in your diary and come along and support it.”
Any clubs, organisations or local producers who would like to get involved in the event should contact Helen Breen on 07963 579964 or Hayley Nicol on email email@example.com.
