For Wales Holidays visitors from Bala and Lake Vyrnwy to Beaumaris on Anglesey, here’s an idea of some of the activities to get involved in later this month.
Anglesey’s more recent history can be explored at Menai Heritage, an exhibition telling the story of the two famous bridges that span the Menai Strait. While a Spooky Halloween Day will be held at Beaumaris Castle on 31 October. The Denbigh Plum Festival invites all the family staying in Llangollen and north-east Wales to go Plum Crazy on 26 October, with cooking and horticultural demonstrations, competitions and entertainment. Try Pumpkin Carving, go for Crazy Cobwebs or enjoy Hallowoods at Loggerheads Country Park; or how about Haunted Happenings at Chirk Castle with a ‘live’ ghost trail and a trip to the dungeons.
Snowdonia and Lleyn cottage visitors can sample North Wales’ largest food festival, Gwledd Conwy Feast at Conwy’s quayside on 26 & 27 October. Halloween fun includes a Spooktacular at Greenwood Park near Caernarfon from 19-31 October, while the Welsh Mountain Zoo’s Shriek Week runs from 26 October–3 November. Snowdonia Walking Festival offers a range of expertly guided walks to suit all levels of fitness from Betws-y-Coed on 26 & 27 October. An exciting weekend of thrills and spills on Barmouth’s super sands in southern Snowdonia at Barnardos Motocross Weekend on 26 & 27 October, with excellent viewing for spectators from the promenade. Children can join in the activities at RSPB Feed the Birds Day at Coed y Brenin Visitor Centre on the 29th. Make witches brooms and more at Drop in Autumn Fun on the 30th and take in the spooky goings on at Halloween Fright Night on the 31st.
