What do you think about Halloween

The celebrations began with stalls selling pumpkin based food. Shops in the town joined in the fun by putting together window dressing displays and sculptures involving pumpkins.

Street entertainers provided amusement for shoppers. Pumpkins donated by David Bowman Ltd and carved by pupils hung in the town centre ready to light the way for the grand parade.
