Children get into the spirit of Hallowe'en
Youngsters took part in a variety of Hallowe'en arts and crafts in Abbey Park.
About 50 children visited the education centre at the park to make broom sticks, Hallowe'en cards and design their own spiders.
They also bought pumpkins to carve, dressed up in ghoulish costumes and took part in a spooky quiz.
Park officer Jenny Jackson, who organised the event, said: "It went really well, most of the kids got dressed up and looked great."
The event, which was organised by Leicester City Council, was free.
Other events taking place today include a Ghost Evening featuring spooky stories at the Guildhall, which starts at 7.30pm.
There is also a Hallowe'en party, at Conkers, in Swadlincote, which starts at 6.30pm and features a ghost train ride, a spooky wood and fancy dress.
