Halloween At Harrison Holidays

Posted on

Summer might feel like a distant memory with the nights drawing in and the temperature dropping, but October can mean only one thing, it’s spooky season! We can’t think of anywhere else we’d like to spend it than sharing the Autumn nights with our loved ones in a cozy holiday home telling ghost stories. And if that’s not enough, we’re gearing up for a Halloween of hauntingly good fun at Harrison Holidays this year, with spine-tingling events for all the family.

With half term approaching, we’re sure the kids are ready for a break after the return to school last month, and there’s face painting, pumpkin decorating, fancy dress, and party games at many of our UK holiday parks. We’ve not forgotten that the grown-ups love Halloween too, and there are Adults Halloween Parties planned as well.

We’re also pleased to announce that there will be the return of Bonfires and Firework Displays at selected parks in November, so get wrapped up and grab your treacle toffee and sparklers!

Let’s have a closer look at our frightfully fantastic Halloween events for 2022.

There’s so much spooky good fun happening at Halloween for holidaymakers and owners at our Southport caravan parks, and we can’t wait to see everyone in their fancy dress.
