More than 130 youngsters showed off their scariest scowls and blood-curdling costumes at Daventry Country Park’s Spooktacular Halloween event.

The free event, sponsored this year by Daventry’s Specsavers, was held at the park off Northern Way on Friday afternoon. Scores of children turned out to join in a fancy dress competition at the Visitor centre before setting off on Trick or Treat trails around the park.

Gemma Mason, Community Projects Officer at Daventry District Council, which organised the event along with the support of Friends of Daventry Country Park, said: “It was wonderful to see so many children turn up in some fantastically spooky costumes and we hope it was a great start to their Halloween weekend.”
