Thousands of pumpkins lanterns transform the shopping streets and Manchester’s iconic buildings glow an eerie green as darkness falls. During the two-day family friendly spooktacular, events include the Haunted Maze with creepy creatures inside, the Trick or Treat Hunt with a sweet or scary surprise behind every (giant) door and a Day of the Dead-style parade with puppets, street performers and freaky dancing. There’s also big screen showings of everyone’s favourite family classics: Ghostbusters, Hocus Pocus and Hotel Transylvania. Head to Market Street, St Ann’s Square, Exchange Square, Deansgate and King Street.
