BID is helping Harrogate get in to the Halloween spirit this half term with a number of special events, including a live outside broadcast by Your Harrogate this morning (Friday 10am- noon).

A spookily-dressed, Halloween-themed photobooth has ‘popped up’ in a vacant unit in Victoria Shopping Centre, where there will be a number of backdrops for people to come along, get into character and take a selfie. There’s also the opportunity of winning one of three £50 Harrogate Gift Cards.

A Halloween-themed interactive trail on our LoyalFree app – just like the summer Lego trail – whereby there will be 13 locations to find around the town centre. These 13 locations, dotted around the town, feature Halloween-themed items, including posters, floor stickers. They will have a QR code on them, which will take participants to a webpage that will play a short, interactive video, with voiceover on spooky, true Harrogate & District stories.

Those who check in to all 13 locations will get entered into a free prize draw for a family ticket for the newly launched Harrogate Ghost Walk. This trail runs until Sunday, October 31.

And look out for ‘Trick & Treat’ street performers, who will be moving around the town centre today and Saturday.
