GHOSTLY goings-on in Frodsham’s ‘haunted’ Castle Park guaranteed a spine-tingling time for Hallowe’en thrill-seekers.
Phantoms and ghouls were out in force as dark descended on the historic parkland. And there were creepy surprises around every corner for visitors who braved torchlight guided walks through staged spectral scenes.
Fire-eaters, shadow puppet shows, fairground rides, craft stalls and a storyteller were added attractions at the park’s first free community Hallowe’en event, which drew about 500 visitors.
A highlight of the evening was a pumpkin carving competition for children, won by Erica Willis, who will claim her prize of turning on the town’s Christmas lights at Frodsham Christmas Festival on November 30.
Castle Park Arts Centre trustee Heidi Bell said: “For the first one, there was a very good turnout and it went really well.”
