Halloween Lantern Walk

It’s coming up to that time again . . . Halloween . . . so, as we always do at this time of year, we are preparing for the Preston Park Halloween Lantern Walk.

We’d love to see you there – it’s a free, family event designed for accompanied children up to the age of thirteen. We’d like you to bring your home-made lanterns (no naked flames please, perhaps you would use battery-operated lights) and, if they want, children can dress up in scary costumes. Adults too can do their bit to scare away park demons by coming in fancy dress.

It’s on Saturday 29 October at the men’s bowls pavilion.

From 6pm there will be dry ice, scary music, Laura Brett – a story-teller of (not too) scary stories, and there will be the French Revolution stand selling sweet and savoury crepes and hot drinks.


At 7pm we’ll walk around the dark park with our lanterns to frighten away ghoulies and monsters.

After the walk there will be a prize awarded for the best children’s lantern, the best children’s costume and the best adult costume.

We’ll be there . . . will you?

Hearty thanks to this year’s sponsors: Sainsbury’s Local, Preston Park and Fox & Sons.
