Watford Market will be full of spooktacular tricks, treats and scarily good street food on Friday 27 October, as ‘Market Lates’ returns for Halloween and it’s shaping up to be downright disturbingly fun!
After the success of previous Halloween night market event organised by Watford Borough Council and Saunders Markets Ltd in September, frightening creatures of the night are invited to eat, drink and be scary at the fa-boo-lous ‘Halloween Market Lates’ event from 5.30pm to 10pm on Friday 27 October.
The Friday night spooktacular will reveal the haunting familiarity of boo-tiful street food set in the shadows of Watford’s historic town centre. Market visitors will be able to have a fang-tastic night with family-friendly entertainment, including live music from Scary Canary at 7pm and walk-through magician. You’ll also be able to take part in a Halloween trail with treats for all that take part.
There will also be fun photo opportunities and your favourite spooky vendors offering devilish dishes and ghoulish delights that will really shake the webs off your broomsticks. The event will include a pop-up bar and the market’s popular food stalls rustling up delicacies to delight your taste buds, including Caribbean, Asian and Korean street food.
Doing Halloween weekend in suitably spooky style, Watford Market will be getting dressed up to the nines, with attendees encouraged to wear fancy dress, so the market can be overcome with ghosts, ghouls and all manner of spooky spirits, feasting on Halloween inspired food and listening to local musicians, all under festoon and decorations.
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, said: “After the success of last year’s Halloween event, lots of people have been asking me when will this be happening again and I am thrilled to announce the date of the ‘Halloween Market Lates Special’ on 27 October. We cannot wait to put on this event to give residents an exciting Halloween experience whilst celebrating what our market has to offer.”
