‘Amaze­ing’ time just be­gin­ning as fes­tive sea­son ap­proaches

Midweek Visiter - - Southport Bid -

OVER 3,000 peo­ple made it through our haunted maze this week­end, all part of our an­nual Hal­lowe’en Fes­ti­val.

The event con­tin­ues to grow and we have had four su­perb days of events that have drawn peo­ple into the town from around Mersey­side and Lan­cashire for great, free fam­ily fun.

From pi­rates to dragons, we brought in spec­tac­u­lar in­ter­ac­tive en­ter­tain­ment that en­cour­aged fam­i­lies to spend all day in town.

The fes­ti­val now puts South­port right at the front of peo­ple’s minds as a des­ti­na­tion for half term.

We haven’t stopped now it is over.

It is full speed ahead for the switch-on event on Novem­ber 18.

We have a great pop line up, all to be an­nounced this week.

There are some very big sur­prises to be re­vealed about the night, and about the spec­tac­u­lar Christ­mas tree we are in­vest­ing in for the town.

All will be re­vealed in the next few days so fol­low us on so­cial me­dia or keep check­ing out our web­site.

Our big news last week was that Town Hall Gar­dens will be trans­formed into an open air ice rink this year!

Sur­rounded by a host of Christ­mas chalets as part of a joint fes­tive cam­paign by Sefton Coun­cil and South­port BID, the rink will be run­ning from De­cem­ber 7 to Jan­uary 5.

Last year’s ice rink was a great suc­cess and we are pleased that with Sefton Coun­cil’s sup­port we are bring­ing it back even big­ger and bet­ter.

It looks set, with our stun­ning new tree, to be spec­tac­u­lar.

We want to make sure South­port is a great des­ti­na­tion for Christ­mas this year with lo­cals and visi­tors com­ing in to skate, eat and shop!

The whole event, along with shop­ping and din­ing in South­port dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son, will be sup­ported by a joint multi-chan­nel mar­ket­ing cam­paign pro­duced by BID and Visit South­port.

Above, fun for the kids; in­set, the maze: the Hal­lowe’en Fes­ti­val is now a firm favourite
