Many of us may think that 2020 has been scary enough as it is but in a year when a lot of celebrations have been cancelled it’s good to highlight the events that are still managing to go ahead offering to put a bit of fun back into our mini ones’ calendars.
Families are being urged to help transform Trick or Treating into a Pumpkin Trail by putting one – real, decorative or crafted – in their window so children can dress up and walk around their neighbourhoods seeing how many different pumpkins they can find (just like the rainbow spotting during lockdown) and parents can always bring their own sweets or treats to hand out along the way.
If you’re going to head to one of the events below as well then obviously it’s even more important than ever to check the details and/or to book your fiendish family’s tickets in advance before leaving your own haunted house for your disastrous destinations…
