Running from 10.30am – 3pm in the old QD premises located within the Britten centre will be a range of craft activities for children which include pumpkin tea light decorating and min pot painting which will be provided free of charge. Along with the unique opportunity to take part in Decopatch crafts at £4 per person.
Throughout the day Lowestoft Vision will be hosting a Pumpkin Trail from 9.30am – 4pm. The trail followers the success of last year’s Halloween trail and is aimed at families with children age 12 and under.
The idea is to follow a trail of pumpkins which will be located in shop windows, children aged 12 years and under who are in Halloween fancy dress and accompanied by an adult can enter these premises to take part in trick or treat.
The trail is open for all businesses in the BID area to take part. Lowestoft Vision will provide pumpkins for businesses to carve and display. Each business who wants to take part will need to provide their own treats for the children (estimated 100 children will take part) which could include sweets, cakes, healthy snacks, games ect (ideally something that represents your business), plus don’t forget to include promotional material on your products to the parents. Alternatively Lowestoft Vision can provide you with sweets for a fee of £25.
Concluding the day’s activity will be the first Halloween street parade! Lowestoft Vision request businesses, staff and colleagues to don the fancy dress and take part in the parade.
Led by our fancy dressed Samba band, The Beach Radio, Cantors Theatre School and stilt walkers, the parade will start at Station Square at 2.30pm, taking a slow rhythmic walk and dance through London Road North up to the area outside Sports Direct lasting between 15 and 20 minutes.
The parade is an ideal opportunity to get hand out any of your own promotional and marketing materials, the parade will last for 15-20 minutes, be seen in your very own wicked fancy dress cozzy!!!
In addition to events undertaken by Lowestoft Vision there are a number of other events taking place in businesses in the town including Coffee heart and Lowestoft Library.
In the coming weeks Lowestoft Vision will be producing marketing material and a media campaign detailing the Halloween activity.
