Thursday, 19 October 2017

A spook-tacular wonderland for youngsters will be created at Dalkeith Country Park to celebrate Halloween.

Fort Douglas is set to be transformed into a haunted playground with plenty of ghosts, witches and pumpkins for children to discover between Friday 27 and Tuesday 31 October.

The Park will also be awarding prizes to the best fancy dress costumes each day.

A host of fantastic Halloween-themed games will also be available for families to enjoy on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 October, including Pin the Boo on the Ghost, Pumpkin Beanbag Toss, Witches Hat Ring Toss and Pumpkin Noughts & Crosses.

Julie Merrilees, Visitor Services Manager at Dalkeith Country Park, said: “There is lots to keep families entertained at Dalkeith Country Park this Halloween.

“Children and adults alike are sure to be amazed at our spine-chilling playground and our Rangers have created an action-packed schedule of ghoulish games. Make sure you stop by to celebrate Halloween with us – and don’t forget to dress up.” 

Fort Douglas is open daily from 10am with the last admission at 5pm. Entry costs £3 for children aged between three and five years, £5 for children aged between six and 12 years – adults and under-twos are free.
