Hor­ror on the streets

Gi­ant drag­ons, haunted maze, pi­rate pa­rade and more in Hal­lowe’en fun in South­port

Midweek Visiter - - Front Page -

SOUTH­PORT BID’s an­nual Hal­lowe’en event is back this week for half-term – and there are four days of great events planned to pro­vide spooky fun for fam­i­lies.

The event, now in its fourth year, has con­tin­ued to grow and draw in vis­i­tors from all over the re­gion.

This year’s ac­tiv­i­ties are cen­tred around a gi­ant maze in Town Hall Gar­dens on Lord Street.

A fam­ily-friendly spook­fest, the fes­ti­val in­vites you to take your chances at get­ting out to the other side with all man­ner of wicked witches and cheeky ghosts try­ing their best to cause mis­chief.

Other high­lights to look out for are gi­ant dragon pup­pets that per­form stun­ning rou­tines to mu­sic as they breathe smoke.

Chapel Street will also play host to an af­ter­noon of pop-up cir­cus per­for­mances, all set to the mu­sic of The Great­est Show­man.

The event, which is free to at­tend, will be on 12pm-3pm with a bril­liant in­ter­ac­tive ghost pi­rate event on Thurs­day.

Hugh Evans, CEO of South­port BID. which puts the event to­gether, said: “We are re­ally ex­cited for the event this year. We haven’t had a maze of this kind in South­port be­fore and we hope it will be a

great fam­ily event that will cre­ate a great buzz over sev­eral days this half-term.”
