This Halloween, a community-focused shopping Centre is set to welcome children and families through its doors.
Packhorse Shopping Centre is launching its first ever Halloween event set to appeal to families looking for spooky fun just in time for the half-term break.
The Centre’s kids-focused Halloween party, the Little Monsters Spooky Scare Trail, is set to take place on Friday, October 28th between 12pm and 3pm with plenty of activities on offer.
Hosted in the Packhorse Kitchen, the party will feature face painting, a trick or treat trail and Halloween-themed treats from each of the Centre’s eateries. Street Food Corner, which features delicacies from across the world, will be on hand to host Halloween cooking demonstrations for children in an interactive workshop to decorate delicious treats.
David Heathcote-Smith, Centre manager at Packhorse Shopping Centre, said: “This year, we are focusing on bringing together an action packed family-focused event that will give children something to do during the half term.
“Our event is completely free and an exclusive kids eat free offer is valid on the day, so we have something on offer to keep the whole family entertained. We hope that plenty of families will attend our event and enjoy the day with us for what promises to be a wonderful afternoon for all.
“It is a fantastic opportunity for children to experience Halloween, we want to
contribute to this annual celebration by offering something the whole family can enjoy with us.”
The Little Monsters Spooky Scare Trail will feature popular family orientated activities including arts and crafts sessions, Halloween face painting, safe trick or treating around the Centre and a whole host of other games and a best dressed prize.
In addition, a best fancy dress prize will be awarded to one lucky individual. Parents will be encouraged to enter their child in the fancy dress competition by posting a photograph on the Centre’s Facebook and Twitter. The winner will be announced after the event where a mystery prize is up for grabs.
Although the event is free to attend, families will be encouraged to make a donation to Great Ormond Street Hospital, a charity the Centre has raised money for in previous events.
