Fearful fancy dress parade for Halloween

Allow your wicked side to show this Halloween at Drusillas Park, when they host the Freaky Fancy Dress Parade on October 31.

Witches, warlocks, goblins and ghouls are all welcome, as young visitors are invited to get into the spirit of things and enter the creepy costume competition.

Those wishing to take part should gather in the Events Arena at 4pm.

The best dressed, as decided by the judges, will receive a year long family membership to the zoo for up to 4 people, together with a goody bag and winner’s trophy.

The Fancy Dress Parade is just one of the events taking place as part of Drusillas Park’s Shriek Week, which has been re-launched for 2012.

A variety of seasonal surprises and eerie entertainment planned between October 27 and November 4.

Activities throughout the event will include a chance to venture through the creepy cobwebbed corridors of Haunted Heights into the terror-tory of sin sisters, Hocus & Pocus as they play hide and shriek with the unsuspecting public.

But parents are warned the gruesome twosome can startle young children and those of a nervous disposition.
