Goblins, skeletons and spooky street performers attracted the crowds as a trick or treat trail and entertainment aplenty took centre stage in Lowestoft today (Saturday).

An annual programme of events were organised by Lowestoft Vision – the town's Business Improvement District (BID) – to encourage families into Lowestoft for Halloween.

And with 60 businesses taking part in a special pumpkin trick or treat trail – sponsored by Eastern Foods, which is based on Lowestoft's historic High Street – it proved to be a success once more.

Hundreds of children – and many adults – wore Halloween fancy dress and visited stores throughout Lowestoft to collect treats as part of the pumpkin trick or treat trail,

'We think it has grown year on year and the community have supported it. With the pumpkin trail and entertainment covering the whole of the town centre, Station Square and Bevan Street, right up to the top of the High Street, it has meant people have used all parts of the town – which is great and what we want.'

Special Halloween events were also held at Coffee Heart, Sams Coffee House and Lowestoft Library, with other businesses holding fundraisers as well.
