Halloween is on the 31st of October, which is the day the kids go back to school, but there are many spooky and fun filled events taking place over half term. You can also make your own Halloween fun too! Halloween is a super fun time of year for me, because I'm American and we know how to celebrate this spooktacular time of year. There are loads of great costumes and Halloween treats and supplies at Maltalan. They've got oodles of googly-eyes, rubber spiders, skeletons and more. Be sure to decorate your house or leave a jack-o-lantern on your doorstep, to welcome trick or treat.


If you're planning a Halloween party of your own, or you're attending a Halloween party, get all your costumes at Susie's Fancy Dress on Richmond Road.
