Halloween may be a one-day celebration, but there is no reason why the fun can’t last a few weeks longer. That’s why this half term in Norfolk you will be thrilled by the fantastic variety of events available in the lead up to the big day. Come and have a frightfully good time at one of these events near our holiday parks in Norfolk this October:
The PrimEVIL Dinosaur Adventure at Lenwade began on the 13th of October and will continue until the 31st from 6pm until 11pm each day. This is one of the biggest Halloween events in Norfolk. Now in its seventh year, it offers a whole host of spooky things; this one is not for the faint hearted. Wander through the Forest of Fear and the Mayhem Manor hotel where you will be met by zombies and other creatures lurking around the dark side, who come out only once a year to celebrate their favourite festival. There are many other surprises hidden around the park to keep you entertained all evening.
The Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade at BeWILDerwood, Hoveton, will be open from the 15th October until the 30th. This offers something a little less gruesome, perfect for the little ones. Take the day to explore the adventure park, suitably decorated for Halloween, and learn of stories from Snagglefang the bat and his wicked witch friends! The kids will even have the chance to decorate their very own lantern to join the parade and be a part of all the fun!
The Halloween Spooktacular at The Hippodrome Circus in Great Yarmouth will give you an experience quite unlike any other. The circus is in town, but the crew are not who you might have been expecting, with the cast being made up of Dracula, a mob of zombies and scary Mexican jugglers, all performing for your entertainment! Get ready to be stunned into silence with the scarily magical performances that will be on offer between the 22nd and 31st of October, with two performances a day at 2pm and 6pm, this is one not to be missed!
Pumpkinanza is the largest pumpkin carving competition in Norfolk, so why not take your carving skills out for a test drive? Get creative and try to carve out the creepiest or most magical scene to be in with a chance of winning the top prize! That’s not all that you can do at the event either, after admiring the work of others, you can enjoy a spooky story and get ready for a fantastic fireworks display that will light up the night sky on Wednesday 26th October.
