Families are invited to celebrate Halloween in style in Solihull town centre next Saturday with a day full of free activities headlined by a fancy-dress parade.
Halloween is now one of the biggest events of the year and Solihull is getting into the spirit with a Spooktacular on Saturday 28th October.
From the famous Ghostbusters car to Day of the Dead gliders, zombie dancers and a funky kids disco – the town centre will be a hive of Halloween activity.
The day has been organised by Solihull BID – the Business Improvement District for the town centre – and all are welcome with all the spooky activities free to get involved in.
As well as the above, there will also be free facepainting available and a fun sticker trail to complete before you showcase those amazing costumes in the fancy-dress parade around Mell Square.
Melanie Palmer, Chief Executive of Solihull BID, said: “If you are looking for a free fun activity for all the family next weekend then Solihull Spooktacular is the place to be.
“Just remember to wear those scary costumes. Last year everyone got into the ghostly spirit, even a few dogs were in fancy dress!”
