CHILDREN GET INTO HALLOWEEN SPIRIT AT LEICESTER SHOPPING CENTRE

Leicester Time: CHILDREN GET INTO HALLOWEEN SPIRIT AT LEICESTER SHOPPING CENTRE

Hundreds of families joined in the ‘frightful fun’ at a free Halloween event put on at Leicester’s Haymarket Shopping Centre.

The shopping centre organised the free Halloween event to entertain youngsters during the half term holidays (Monday 17 to Friday, 21 October.)

A series of fancy dress competitions were held during the event, which were judged by vampires ‘Brad and Vlad.’

Children got into the spirit of the occasion, by dressing as vampires, aliens, zombies, grim reapers, pumpkins and skeletons.

Seven-year-old Poppy Farwell (pictured bottom left) won a prize for her spooky fancy dress efforts.

As well as fancy dress, children got creative at free make and take craft workshop decorating hundreds of bats, cats, pumpkins and spooky masks to take home.

A pair of glamorous green witches in fabulous lit-up outfits also made appearances, towering above youngsters on stilts.

“It was wonderful to see so many youngsters had made such an effort dressing up for the occasion!”
