Halloween in North Wales is going to be unbelievably scary this year with plenty of activities for all the whole family.
Can you believe that already the leaves are falling from the trees, evenings are getting darker earlier, and it’s only a short time until Halloween? It’s thought that many of our Halloween traditions originated in the USA. However, it’s also recognised that they started off as Celtic harvest festivals, with pagan roots in the UK.
Halloween Events in North Wales
Many of the activities for adults and children alike to sink their fangs into include dressing up in spooky, fancy dress costumes, carving pumpkins, apple bobbing games, visiting haunted attractions and playing pranks. Here is a list of some of the things you can book now in time for Halloween this year.
