EACH’s annual family spooktacular is a two-mile (3.2km) long adventure of magic and mystery, and this year takes place from 4.30pm on Saturday, October 27.

It will start and finish at Felixstowe Leisure Centre, with the sea front once again coming alive in between.

As well as plenty of activities for all, there will be prizes for the best-dressed boy and girl. Tickets cost £7 for children aged three to 11, a price that includes a special head bopper, and £2 for anyone aged 12 or over. Infants go free.

Louisa Smart, EACH Suffolk community fundraising assistant, said: “This is obviously a very popular event in the community as we’re bringing it to Felixstowe for the fourth time this year. We can’t wait to see everyone’s costumes.
