The extended event, which is now run in partnership with Wisbech Town Council, takes place from 3-5pm on Saturday.

A trick or treat event, which will for the first time span across Wisbech town centre, will include free goodies being given away from 60 local shops and businesses.

This year, instead of a map, children can easily spot the businesses involved as they’ll be waiting by their doors and displaying a poster in the run up to the event.

Horsefair centre manager, Kevin Smith, said: “Our Halloween event has been growing for many years now so much so that we’ve invited local businesses in the town centre to join in and they’ve all been incredibly keen to be involved.

There will also be a fancy dress competition that will be judged by the Mayor of Wisbech at 4pm on the market place with a prize being awarded to the best boy and girl in the scariest costume.
