Creepy clowns, devils and demons, ghosts and ghouls, skeletons and Scream’s, witches and wizards – Wisbech’s Halloween fun day spooked back into town on Saturday.
Attracting more people than ever before, thanks to an expansion into the town centre by working in partnership with Wisbech Town Council, the fun day welcomed nearly a thousand little (and some not so little) horrors to the Spooktactular event.
Children took part in a trick or treat event, which, for the first time, spanned across town. Involving over 60 local businesses and shops including those in the Horsefair, the High Street, Union Street and around the market place, hundreds of free treats were given away.
Roger Vanhinsbergh, Horsefair security officer, said it was a marvellous event.
“The whole of the Market Square and Horsefair were jammed.

“It was very busy all afternoon,” he added, “and there was a much bigger turn out than we have ever had before.”
A fancy dress competition, which was judged by the Mayor of Wisbech, also saw prizes being awarded to the best boys and girls in the scariest costume.
