Halloween Show – 23.10.16

What a fantastic day at the Halloween Show we had? Lots of scary monsters, evil clowns, witches, wizards and even a unicorn came along to tackle the tricks and treats in store for them.

Robert had concocted a super obstacle course once again, with spiders webs to navigate and ghosts and ghouls to avoid. While Laurel and the course building team had created just the right amount of trickiness, that didn’t prove too spooky!

Read on to see who took home the trophies and top place ribbons. Apologies if the treats for the competitors left their sugar levels on the high side, everyone seemed to be in very good spirits at the Halloween Show.
