Shoppers enjoyed a Hallowe’en treat at the Westgate Arcade in Halifax at the weekend. Many of the shops in the covered centre dressed their windows with spooky themes and giant pumpkins adorned the entrances. Some traders even dressed up in scary attire to add to the atmosphere.
Children’s face painter Julie Dee, of Face Ace, Hebden Bridge, was a popular attraction. Visitors were also asked to nominate their favourite window display.
A selection of Hallowe’en pictures by pupils from Warley Town School is currently on display in the passageway between Westgate and the New Road car park.
Assistant Manager of Westgate David Riley said: “It was a great opportunity for traders to enter into the spirit of Hallowe’en. Many of them went to great lengths to decorate their windows, which helped to enhance the shopping experience.”
Together, the Piece Hall and the Westgate Arcade Shopping Centre hosted "one of the best" and most well attended Yorkshire Day events in the region. Hope this is a sign of things to come for Halifax!
