Halloween fun at King George Recreation Ground, Bushey
Ghouls and goblins are set to roam in Bushey, as King George Recreation Ground is transformed to mark Halloween.
On Saturday, October 27, children are invited to don their scariest outfits at the event, with Hertsmere Mayor Councillor Pat Strack judging who is the spookiest 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.
Shaz Setoudeh, events officer at Hertsmere Leisure, said: "The Halloween trail is really about getting youngsters into the park to have some fun and getting them to use their thinking skills to solve a puzzle.
"We must thank the Friends of King Georges Recreation Ground, as they are all volunteering their time for free to help with the organising of this event with Hertsmere Leisure. It is a great example of partnership work in the local community for the local community."
The event runs from 11am to 12.30pm with the results of the scariest fancy dress costume competition at 12.15pm with prizes, kindly 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.
