The event in the town’s Market Place was laid on by Boston Borough Council and Visit Boston to help entertain youngsters during half term, with a range of free activities to enjoy in the October sunshine.

Children were entertained with some spooky storytelling and frightful face painting by Felicity Sayers around stalls set up near the Stump.

The ghoulish youngsters could also try their hand at some creepy crafts such as decorating plates with batty Halloween designs and stencils or creating their own creepy creature sculptures from vegetables.
