Halloween event for children in Bushey
Witches and warlocks are set to wander Bushey today, as King George Recreation Ground is transformed to mark Halloween.
Children are invited to don their scariest outfits for the event, with Hertsmere Mayor Councillor Pat Strack judging who is the scariest of them all.
Organised by Hertsmere Leisure in conjunction with the Friends of King Georges Recreation Ground, children accompanied by parents will be asked to search the park for clues which will result in chocolate treats as part of a spooky Halloween trail.
Children will turn detective by searching for picture clues placed around the park which will eventually spell a word. Once the clues have been filled in, the small detectives can return to base to receive their chocolate prize.
Under fives will not leave the event empty handed, the same game will run, but with the clues as single letters that spell a word and confined to the play area only.
The event runs from 11am to 12.30pm with the results of the scariest fancy dress costume competition at 12.15pm with prizes, donated by the Friends of King Georges Recreation Ground, presented by Mayor Strack.
To take part in the Halloween in the Park event, entry is £1 per child and participants must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
