Roads set to close for Britain’s “biggest and bestest” Halloween carnival this Sunday.
The centre of Sheffield is scheduled to close this Sunday for Fright Night, the free Halloween carnival which attracts tens of thousands of spectators every year.
This annual event always takes the city by storm, and is considered by critics to be one of Britain’s most prestigious Halloween street parties.
The mass promenade event is renowned for the fantastic outfits and family atmosphere created by the great turn-out of people from across the country.
Councillor Jon Smith promises an alternative to traditional trick-or-treating which is “fun for all the family,” and altogether “much safer” for children on this significant date.
For kids, Fright Night’s Little Brother on The Moor is set to run between 12 and three in the afternoon, ending half an hour before the carnival begins.
Award-winning magician Steve Faulkner will be performing at the City Hall towards the end of the evening, alongside mind-readers and plenty of spooky outfits from the University of Sheffield Drama Department.
Streetscene, the “unsung heroes of the night,” will be working throughout the evening to shift over 3 tonnes of litter ready for normality on Monday morning. There is emphasis on making this night as environmentally friendly as possible, and recycle bins will be specifically brought onto the scene.
Sheffield City Council advise using one or more of the sponsored transport companies as many public roads will be closed, and this will ease congestion in and out of the city.
