The kids may not be able to go trick-or-treating as usual this year, but we’re giving them the chance to dress up and eat lots of sweets regardless.

Your Harrogate will be holding a Virtual Trick-or-Treat competition via our Facebook page on Halloween night – with the best-dressed child scooping a gift box chocked full of sweets from The Oldest Sweet Shop in the World, Pateley Bridge!

How to enter

Just take a photo of your child in their best spooky outfit that they would’ve worn for trick-or-treating this year.

Send it to us via Facebook – we’ll be putting a post out at 6pm on Saturday 31st October to collect all the entries.

We’ll then be choosing the winner based on who has the spookiest outfit!
