It’s set to be a spooky day in Ilkeston today...
A Hallowe’en-inspired day starts with a fancy dress competition in the Market Place, judged by Mayor Cllr Val Clare at 12.30pm.
There is a pool party at Victoria Park Leisure Centre from 3.30pm to 5pm when the pool will be spookily decorated and fun floats will be out.
Limited tickets are £3 each and there will be a free toffee apple for every child and a chance to win an iPod.
Free activities include guided ghost walks around Market Place, ghost tours of the Town Hall and spooky story-telling sessions.
And look out for creepy characters roaming the town.
