Roller disco and spooky walk top Halloween calendar
Ghost and ghouls strapped on their roller skates for Halloween fun.
Scores of skaters turned out for the Preston Phoenix Roller Sports Club event at the Preston’s College Sports Centre.
And many of them entered into the spooky spirit by dressing up in costume for the Saturday afternoon roller disco.
A wide range of ages enjoyed the fun, with prizes being awarded for the best outfits.
Roller skating coach Christopher Thomas said: “It was great fun. We have really good age range of people taking part now from grandads to four-year-olds.
“Skating is something that all the family can do and it’s getting more and more popular.”
The costume theme will be repeated again on December 12 when the club will be holding a Christmas-themed roller disco.
The club organises skating from 1.15pm at Preston’s College every Saturday. All are welcome.
Meanwhile, children and adults enjoyed a creepy walk around Preston’s Avenham Park in the Preston Council-organised Halloween Spooktacular Tour.
Characters form the Bodello Theatre Company and Preston Youth Theatre company accompanied the walkers on a creepy route from Avenham Pavilion punctuated by spooky tales. Many participants wore fancy dress.
