Fright night ‘spooky’ fun in Keighley
12:10pm Saturday 26th October 2013 in News
Residents in the Keighley district are preparing to get into the spirit of Hallowe’en.
A g-host of activities are planned to chill and thrill!
Visitors to a new housing development at Steeton will be able to enjoy a spooky weekend.
Hallowe’en children’s games are on offer at Redrow’s Manor Fields – in Thornhill Road – on Saturday and Sunday, and the sales office will be suitably decorated.
Sales director, Patsy Aicken, said: “We hope as many people as possible come along for the fun – I can promise a few spooky surprises for those who do, but some lovely treats too.”
A decorated pumpkin competition is being held at the ForTeas cafe in Keighley.
Children are invited to take their pumpkin heads to the period-style cafe, at the corner of North Street and High Street, on or before Saturday.
The creations will be judged by customers, with a special cream tea for two for the winner.
A Hallowe’en party is being held at Keighley Rugby Union Club in Skipton Road, Utley, on November 1.
Admission costs £5 for adults and £3.50 for children, and there will be music, games and food.
The event, organised by the club, begins at 7pm.
This year’s Hallowe’en celebrations in Haworth promise to be a suitably spooky experience for locals and visitors alike.
All manner of beasts, phantoms, witches and other apparitions will parade up the village’s Main Street both days this weekend.
There will be a dragon parade on Saturday, starting at the bottom of the street at 3pm. This will be led by Cross Roads-based ‘Chicks on Sticks’ street entertainer, Rachel Hyde, in her dragon costume.
The following day will feature a ghoul’s parade, also progressing up Main Street from 3pm onwards.
Young and old alike are invited to dress up appropriately and take part. There will be costume judging on both days to single out the most imaginative and spine-chilling outfits.
Event organiser and Haworth trader, Mike Hutchinson, who also participates in the parades, said: “Originally, we’d arranged this mainly for locals, but now we do get people coming from further away. The more the merrier really.”
