More than two thousand people visited Halton’s Hallowe’en Market in Widnes at the weekend, making the event a spook-tacular success.
Over 80 stalls, including food, arts and crafts, vintage and collectibles, home wear, fancy and novelty goods were open from 10am until 4pm with the chance for you to ‘get your teeth’ into some real bargains. You could even visit the clothes stalls and really ‘vamp’ it up!
It was the first of two ‘Super Sundays’ when Widnes Outdoor Market is open for shoppers – With a Sunday of Americana to celebrate the The Tomahawks coming to Widnes for the World Cup, on Sunday (Nov3). #rlwc2013 #USAtomahawks
You can meet Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper, and meet a real life bald eagle – all for free, at the popular town centre market. You can bet your bottom dollar you will be impressed!
Free parking is always available for the market and most local buses will use the bus station at the market as a stopping point so there is no reason for you not to make it over for a bargain.
The Tomahawks will actually be playing Wales on the day of the market, so time for a quick shop and then down to Wrexham for the game!
Alongside the stalls will be Classic American Cars, your chance to meet our very own bald eagle, Barry, who will be available for photos, plus the mascot of the Tomahawks, Tom the Eagle, will be opening up the market at 10am.
Once again 80 outdoor market stalls will be open selling everything from arts and craft, collectables, vintage and food, plus, children can enter a ‘find a dollar’ competition.
To entertain both you and the traders throughout the day will be the Panama Jazz Band plus swing and dixie music.
Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for the Physical Environment, Cllr Ron Ron Hignett, said this was an ideal opportunity to see what the market has to offer.
“Both these are real community events. Why not come down and check out the stalls? There really will be something for everybody.”
