Scarborough Town Centre hosted a Halloween walk through for the month of October 2023. It featured creatures, lights and lots and lots of pumpkins. We felt brave enough to go for a visit.
There was a tent of lights filled with scary clown heads.
If you had to look away from the creepy clowns and looked straight up, the lights and ribbons were beautiful against the night sky.
Next up was a row of alien specimens preserved in some sort of liquid.
The next scene was a biohazard cleanup scene. Perhaps something had gone wrong with one of the alien specimens?
There were some huge creatures who didn't look so scary. They looked more like they were mummy DJs spinning all the Halloween classics like Michael Jackson's "Thriller".
There was a small forest where the trees had eyes. We even spotted a small owl skeleton hiding in one of the trees.
Unfortunately, it was raining when we arrived so the hanging hands and feet were even more disgusting. The rain dripped off of the bandages as we passed under.
Finally, we emerged from the Nights of Lights and entered Pumpkinville.
Pumpkinville lived up to its name as there were pumpkins everywhere.
There was even a giant wall made out of just pumpkins. We are not sure if they will get the chance to become Jack-o-lanterns or turned into pie before the wall starts to rot away.
A gourd frog had its eye on those insects. Cucurbita means gourd in Latin.
Día de los Muertos takes place at the start of November. There was a tunnel filled with colour and skulls to celebrate.
A few rides were set up for children. This included a very small ferris wheel. We would be lucky if even one of our legs could comfortably go for a ride. We didn't want to join the other body parts hanging in the maze in order to find out.
There were a few food and drink stands. We were delighted to see our favourite lemonade flavour. Corn roasted yams!!
While enjoying the Fall season we had a good time exploring Pumpkinville and the Halloween Nights of Lights.
