FREE activities on the day include pumpkin bowling, freaky face paint stenciling, creepy crafts, spooky stone painting with Islastones painting and a themed stilt walker. More »
Bring in your carved pumpkin and display at the event with prizes to be won. Local radio station Fosse 107 will be providing the spooky soundtrack to the day – enjoy the sounds of Thriller, Monster Mash, Ghost Busters and many more.
Residents and visitors are encouraged to join in the fun and dress up in their Halloween costumes and enjoy some frightful fun and have a fang-tastic day out in haunted Hinckley.

Shoppers will be able to park for free from Monday 18 – Saturday 23 October inclusive, from 9am onwards in Lower Bond Street, Trinity West and Castle car parks.
