CHILDREN and adults donned fancy dress costumes and gathered at Wimpy Park for some spooky fun at the weekend.

There was a whole array of outfits on display during the Zombie Walk held on Saturday, October 28, from skeletons and clowns, to superheroes and witches.

It was an event for the whole family and brought some good, old-fashioned Halloween fun to Alloa.

There was a zombie walk up through the woods – which came with a few frights – and into the Mar Policies, along with some spooky storytelling.

And there were also plenty of games in the park itself, including a dress the mummy competition.

Youngsters also had a great time trying to grab the sticky doughnuts, with 130 of the treats vanishing from sight.

The event was organised by the Wimpy Park Community Group, a band of volunteers working to bring the space back to its best.

Mark Mitchell, one of the founders, said: "Once again I think we were blown away by the support of the community.

"I think the turnout was better than what we expected.

"It was great to see families coming out in fancy dress, not just kids.

"The feedback we have been getting from everybody, on Facebook and on the actual night, was fantastic."

The event made a real effort to include the whole community and local schools helped to make the decorations for the night.

Although it was free to attend, around £105 was raised via donations which will help fund the group's future work.

It received plenty of backing and somewhere in the region of150-200 people turned out.

It also went a long way in supporting Mark's aim of providing a space for children to play, families to get together, and the community to meet.

"The stuff that we're doing is involving families; it's not just about kids, it's about mums, dads, uncles, aunties coming with kids, he said.

"It's great to see and hopefully we can maybe do something at Christmas time where again it will involve, not just the kids, but the families."

The group is also keen to welcome more volunteers, adults or youngsters, – get in touch via the Wimpy Park Community Group Facebook page for more.
