Spooktacular goings on get underway at Clacton Pier at the weekend.

Final preparations are taking place for the attraction’s biggest ever Halloween Festival which runs for nine days in half term.

Around 2,000 pumpkins have been ordered and the forecourt is being transformed into a fangtastic themed venue.

Pier director Billy Ball said every effort has been made to freshen up the offering and add new features.

“We aim to go bigger and better with our festivals each year and build on the success of the previous year,” he said.

“We believe the changes will go down well with customers and there is plenty of fun for all the family.”

The event will include a brand-new Misery Mansion haunted house walk-through experience, a pumpkin patch, a Halloween archway entrance, and Tudor huts selling ghoulish food and drinks.

A new stage is being created for the ever-popular Styles family to perform their shows and they will also be going walk-about throughout the day.

The family are also bringing along their shooting range and striker to the festival as added attractions.

Attractions include a monstrous display and the whole pier will be decked out in Halloween decorations.

A fancy-dress competition will be staged on Saturday October 29 at 4pm with the winner receiving an annual ride pass.

There is a special all-in price of £24.99 for a package which would individually cost £75. For the first time this will be available at just £9.99 for annual ride pass holders.

The deal involves entrance to the Misery Mansion; a game of adventure golf; unlimited rides, one race on the go-karts; entry to the seaquarium; unlimited video games; entry to the pumpkin patch and a cobweb cand floss.

Anyone coming back a second time during half term will get another go for £12.99.

The festival runs daily from October 22-30 and tickets are on sale at www.clactonpier.co.uk
