Halloween might normally be celebrated under the cover of darkness, but weekend visitors to Lynn’s town centre were only too happy to be spooked in broad daylight.

That was because they flocked to the town’s Vancouver Quarter shopping district for a seasonal spooktacular on Saturday afternoon.

Youngsters of all ages reported to a special Halloween Headquarters on Baxter’s Plain to collect a special Halloween card.

They then made their way around the town centre collecting stickers from a host of ghoulish characters to complete the card.

Participants who collected all six stickers received a goodie bag from the shopping centre and West Norfolk Council.

Vancouver Quarter manager Abbie Panks said: “We’d like to thank the hundreds of children and their parents who took part in our Halloween event this year, more than 1,100 goodie bags were given out during the course of the event which is an increase on 2014. We were delighted by the positive feedback we received from parents and also retailers.
