Huntingdon Racecourse is gearing up to host a Halloween and Firework Extravaganza on Saturday night.

With entertainment aimed at families, the Halloween and Firework Extravaganza, held in association with The Hunts Post, will see a feast of fun and games on offer for visitors, including pumpkin carving and a fancy dress competition.

Gates at Huntingdon Racecourse open at 4.30pm and the firework display starts at 7.30pm.

The night will include a family fancy dress competition and there will also be a free pumpkin carving competition. The pumpkin carving competition will be divided into three age groups (under 12s, 12-17, 18 and over) and you can download your entry form from huntingdon.thejockeyclub.co.uk

There will also be a funfair featuring a ghost train and other spooky rides, and a beer tent showcasing local ales at the ‘spooks and sparkles’ night.

Tickets for the night cost £5 per adult in advance and £7 on the gate. Please note that a booking fee will apply. Children go free, with up to four children aged under 18 on each adult ticket. Bring ID if necessary.
