THERE will be a whole load of spooky fun for children in Halesowen later this month.

A community event in the town centre to mark Halloween will include children's entertainers, a Ghostbusters car, scary dance troops, special effects face paint and fun fair rides.

Children can also enjoy taking part in a pumpkin trail and can even carve their own spooky pumpkin.

The 'Halesoween Spooktacular' is being staged by Halesowen BID, which has pulled out all the stops to organise lots of fun for all the family, on Saturday October 30.

Terry the Tash from Great British Bake Off will be in Halesowen creating Halloween inspired edible delights.

Talented Terry was commissioned by JK Rowling to create a gift Hogwart from gingerbread.

Halesowen Business Improvement District (BID) manager Vicky Rogers said: "There will be loads going on and everyone is welcome to attend this free event."
