Spooky fun plans

New Hal­lowe’en party planned by lo­cal com­mit­tee

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Clare Damodaran

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 hay­leyn­i­coll22@hot­mail.co.uk.
