Kids join in spooky events
CHILDREN had a spooktacular time across Swindon as ghosts, witches and zombies all came out for Halloween.
As hundreds took to the streets to take part in the tradition of trick or treating, others headed to activities where they had the chance to make the likes of pumpkin lanterns and scary masks.
Children lit up the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery when they took part in a lantern making event.
There was a hair-raising experience Hair 2 Go who had a special Halloween afternoon to raise money for Koalas charity for special needs children.
Hairdresser Karen Hudson got in the spirit and dressed up as Edward Scissorhands to give customers a fright.
Children and staff at the Big A Club, which is a holiday club based at Lydiard Park Academy, had a ghoulish time with a host of party games including apple bobbing and a staff dance off.
Tracey Hicks, company director said: “We’re a holiday club for children aged between three and 12, and decided to host a Halloween party where all the children and staff got dressed up and played party games.
“We had about 25 children in yesterday and they all enjoyed themselves.
“There were all the traditional games like apple bobbing and some of the staff had a dance off, it was a really good day.”
Little monsters were also spotted at Lydiard House, who hosted a monster masks making workshop.
