It's the season for scares, the time for terror and the month for mischief. For some of you, this may be an year-round kind of thing, for everyone else, there is Halloween. And, once again, there is plenty you could be doing this October to celebrate the night where the dead walk again, witches cavort with Frankenstein's monster, and scantily-clad catwomen are far too frequent.
All across Bolton, events are taking place for the whole family to enjoy, promising you a great time and threatening to scare you senseless in the process. However, for those of a more nervous disposition, there is also plenty to do that isn't so scarring. So, here's a rundown . . .
