Families packed the Vancouver Quarter on Friday 31 October for our Halloween spooktacular.
Between 3pm and 5.30pm, children and their parents reported to the Vancouver Quarter’s Halloween HQ on Baxter’s Plain, opposite Argos, Costa Coffee and Beales, to collect their trail map before they made their way around the town centre searching for code words. Those who collected all the words to our special Halloween poem were rewarded with a goodie bag from the Vancouver Quarter and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.
Abbie Panks, centre manager, said: “We’d like to thank the hundreds of parents and children who took part in our Halloween event this year and made it one of our biggest Halloween events to date. We saw a 10 per cent increase in footfall compared to last year’s event and almost 1,000 Halloween trail maps were given out, 500 of these were distributed within the first half an hour which was unprecedented.
“We were delighted by the positive feedback we received from parents and hope their children enjoyed collecting the codewords on the trail and being greeted by street entertainers before receiving their goodie bags. Thanks must be given to Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk for teaming up with us once again for this event. Also thanks to The Puppeteers for performing on the balcony at Beales, the support staff who helped pack the goody bags and run the event and to all the retailers who housed the trail’s codewords.”
