About the event

Join the team at Lackford Lakes in celebrating this spooky evening!

Families will have the opportunity to walk around the lakes after dark following our pumpkin trail, visit our trick or treat hides and our spooky story tellers!

  With 5 different trick or treat stations and 4 spooky short stories there is lots to get excited about. Our one way route will give you the opportunity to see the lakes in a whole new way and of course fancy dress is encouraged!

The event is recommended for 6+ due to the spooky nature and it is self led so please bring a torch! It will take about an hour to get around the trail.

 Please bring a small bag or container to collect your sweets in!

During the event our takeaway hatch will be open for hot drinks and snacks.

A toilet will be open on the night if you wish to use it.
