Autumn is now here in full swing and you know what that means... Halloween preparations start now!
I don't know about you but I am very excited to snuggle up in some blankets and binge watch all the Tim Burton films with a bowl of treats - Halloween is one of my favourite seasons.
Whether you are a horror fanatic and fancy tackling a few scare mazes or you want to grab a pumpkin spice latte and wonder down some eerie trails, we have got events here for everyone.
Meanwhile, here are eight spooky scary things to do in Northamptonshire this Halloween... muahahahaha!
5. Evenley Wood Garden Halloween Spooktacular
Monday, October 25. Are you brave enough to embark on a spooky scavenger hunt at Evenley Wood Garden? Venture on a dark trail full of ghosts, myths and legends and tick off the items on your list to claim your bag of treats. See the wood in a whole new light, following the pumpkins to see what might be hiding in the undergrowth! Little ones can take part in a pumpkin carving workshop or join in a fancy dress competition by posting a photograph of them in the wood in their Halloween costumes with the tag #spookyevenleywoodgarden to be in with a chance of winning a family ticket to Evenley Wood Garden's Christmas event. Address: Evenley, Brackley, NN13 5SH
