Chester BID Halloween Trail
 

Chester BID brings back it’s programme of Halloween events for the first time since 2019, with activities that are open to all

Chester city centre is set to be spooky and sweet this October as a programme of family friendly events launches in celebration of Halloween, with the popular Trick or Treat Trail relaunching for the half term week from the 25th to 31st of October.

Trick or treating was discouraged in October 2020 due to Covid restrictions. With many families feeling it still may be inappropriate to encourage an activity that could worry other households, Chester BID and city centre businesses have stepped in.

The trail will span across over 40 businesses in the city centre. At each location, treats will be given out, as they would be with traditional trick or treating. Children are also given the opportunity to spot spooky hidden items along the way to complete their trail form. The forms are available to collect from the Visitor Information Centre (VIC) on Town Hall Square, from any of the participating locations, or can be downloaded.

Completed sheets should be handed back to the VIC for a chance to win the grand prize of a hamper worth £500! Prizes in the hamper come kindly donated by over 20 businesses with a mix of gifts for all the family, ensuring grown ups also get a treat this Halloween.

Emily Ghazarian, marketing and events manager, Chester BID: ‘It is so important to us to re-launch the events families of Chester enjoyed pre-pandemic and make our children feel a sense of happy normality again.

‘The Trick or Treat Trail offers a brilliant chance for those families who aren’t ready to start trick or treating in their own neighbourhoods yet.

‘The message is - Chester businesses are ready and waiting to invite all Halloween guests, and they especially will love to see those in fancy dress!’

Alongside the trail will be other spooky events including a free screening of Coco at the atmospheric Grosvenor Museum on October 30th.
