Halloween in Putney
Thanks to all the families that came down to Putney on Friday the 27th of October for Putney’s annual trick or treat trail. This year saw 45 Putney businesses take part with many businesses getting into the spooky spirit by decorating and dressing up for the occasion. We ended up handing out over 5000 sweets!
Activities & Characters
Face-painting and balloon modelling were available with both proving ever popular. We loved spotting all the balloon swords and painted faces along the trail, as well as all the happy faces!
Characters included Theodora Trinket – the friendliest Halloween witch you ever did meet, who performed tricks on Upper Richmond Road. Our Stilt walker impressed those on Putney High Street. Even teenagers stopped to look at (and film) the remote controlled musical skeleton that was roaming the High Street throughout the event.
It was great seeing the effort all the businesses put in to dressing up and decorating their stores. We loved the extra effort Morrows gave in giving some of the children a ‘Trick’ as well as the goodies and mascot that Metro bank provided. The teams at Trinity Hospice and Snappy Snaps all looked fantastic in their costumes.
Art Installation & Puppet
The giant Arcachnobot stole the show with both children and adults mesmerised by the puppet’s life-like movements.
‘What Dreams may come’ light installation debuted on trick or treat trail day and is now available to view outside the Boathouse on Putney Wharf until the 12th of November. Visit when the sun goes down. Discover more about the art installation here.
