Ormskirk’s Coronation Park getting a ready for a spooktastic free event

Halloween is nearing and Ormskirk’s Coronation park is being prepared for fantastic frights and stupendous screams as scary creatures descend for Halloween on Wednesday 31 October.

There will be plenty of scary goings on between 6pm and 8pm at this magnificent Halloween extravaganza, including scary walks through the woods with vampires, witches, ghosts and much more.

There will be live Halloween music provided by The Doctors and Base Dance will be showing off their Halloween-style dancefloor moves. There will also be fancy dress and best pumpkin competitions at 7pm.

Just before Halloween people can enjoy carving scary pumpkins on Saturday 27 October at Stanley Coronation Park, Skelmersdale, at 10am and Richmond Park, Burscough, at 2pm. Another pumpkin carving session is planned at Coronation Park, Ormskirk at 2pm on Sunday 28 October. Booking is essential for the pumpkin carving.

The pumpkins from the carving sessions will be dotted around Coronation Park, Ormskirk, on Halloween night and the best three will be given a prize that night.

Councillor Yvonne Gagen, West Lancashire Borough Council portfolio holder for Leisure, said: “Halloween will definitely be a scream at Coronation Park, Ormskirk, so don’t miss this fantastic evening of fun and games for all the family.”
