Family fun at Downham Market Town Square. Pictures by Ian Burt can be ordered from 01553 611111.

Spooky fun was the order of the day when families were invited to get dressed up for a Halloween event.

Downham Market Town Council’s community development committee organised a fun event last Friday in the Town Square.

Attractions included a fun fair ride, face painting, games and a disco.

A spokesperson said: “The Halloween Fun Day was a great success with lots of happy faces. 

“It was wonderful to see the children enjoying themselves and to be able to provide free fun for the community.”

There was also a fancy dress competition  with vouchers, donated by a councillor, for the best three costumes.

The first and second place winners will also be invited to help switch-on the festive lights at the town’s Christmas lights switch-on event on November 26.
