HUNDREDS of people of all ages enjoyed a pair of ghastly gatherings in Haworth last weekend as part of the village’s latest “Hawortheen” celebrations.
They turned up on both Saturday and Sunday (Oct 29/30) for a pair of well attended parades along Main Street, dedicated to showing off some of the most scarily imaginative costumes and makeup.
The village continued to host spooky entertainment the following day, with a ghouls parade again up Main Street, followed by more fun and games.
The weekend featured a Day of the Dead event in the Old Hall complete with music and food, as well as other entertainment in the Black Bull and Sun Pubs.
Weekend organiser and Main Street trader Mike Hutchinson said: “It has been terrific. The weather was kind on both days – a little nippy but dry – there was a good turnout on the Saturday and on Sunday the number of people was phenomenal.
“We had a good Halloween display at Ye Sleeping House bed and breakfast and we had collection boxes out to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and for village events.
“This is an established part of the calendar now and the atmosphere was brilliant. Everyone had a lot of fun and many of the costumes this year were absolutely superb.
