Scary Halloween fun for all the family


Witches and pumpkin

Ghosts and ghouls were on the loose in Hemel Hempstead's Old Town at our annual Halloween street party on Sunday (27 October 2019).

The High Street was transformed with a ghost train and scary fairground ride, fiendishly good food, street entertainment and frighteningly fun activities for all the family.

The event finished with a spectacular free firework display in Gadebridge Park.

There were also great prizes up for grabs in our fancy dress competition including tickets to the pantomime at the Old Town Theatre, entry to DJ's Play Park and vouchers for Quasar.

The competition was judged and presented by Cllr Terry Douris, Mayor of Dacorum and Sir Mike Penning MP.

Cllr Graham Sutton, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Infrastructure, said: "Hemel's Old Town was the perfect setting for a spooky Halloween experience; there really was something for everyone.

"I would like to thank our staff for putting this event on and M&M Glass who sponsored the stage. The impressive uptake emphasises that our Halloween Party is an important event in Dacorum's calendar."
