There is no grave danger of being bored this Halloween with spooky events taking place in Hatfield.
The free festival will be held in White Lion Square from 11am to 4pm on Saturday, October 29.
Activities include face painting, children’s art activities, local food trader stalls and lots more. A percentage of all proceeds from the stalls will be going to local charities.
There will also be competitions for the best Halloween costume and the best short story, which can be written before the event and submitted on the day.
Treats will be on offer throughout the event, with prizes including family gym memberships and cinema tickets.
Councillor Tony Kingsbury, executive member for policy and culture and chair of the town team, said: “I am very pleased to announce the latest event to be added to the Hatfield town centre events calendar, Halloween Fest.
“It will be a great alternative to trick or treating and something that the whole family can enjoy together.”
The annual Family Halloween Event at Mill Green will be held on Monday, October 31 from 5.30pm to 7pm.
