Peterborough’s Positively Ghoulish Trick or Treat Trail

Saturday 21st October 2023, City Centre, 10am-4pm

Hundreds of families took part in a free, spooktacular trick or treat trail around the city centre during this one-day event organised by Peterborough Positive and Peterborough Museum.

Families dressed up in their most fang-tastic costumes and followed the trail map through the city centre to find spooky characters hiding in six shops and businesses, solved their tricks and won some treats.
