There’s much more to Halloween than just trick or treating, and the variety of spooky fun to have in Blackpool is frightfully good.
For families with small children, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the atmosphere of Halloween without it being too scary for little ones to get involved. There are big thrills to be had across resort, but we’ve selected a few of the more gentle events taking place that the whole family can enjoy.
The Blackpool Tower Ballroom Halloween Family Party
Go along to one of the most beautiful spots in Blackpool on 26 and 31 October, the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, for a spooktacular Halloween family party to remember!
The whole family (particularly the little ones) will be amazed by illusions and a themed UV Light Show.
The entertainment includes Hayley Kay, Halloween balloon show, thriller dance routines, a fancy dress competition (where first prize is a Merlin Annual Pass for a family of four worth £476.00!) and a UV party! There’ll be Halloween themed treats aplenty, fabulous décor and surprises. The event starts from 18:00 and goes on until 22:00 with tickets priced at £8.95 for adults, £6.95 for children and £2.95 for toddlers (2-3 years). Be there, and be scared!
