Cranbrook residents are invited to dress their ghoulish best when the town stages its popular Pumpkin Party.
The Hallowe’en-themed bash will be put on at the Cranberry Farm pub on October 27, starting at 3pm and running to late.
The event will feature fairground rides and free workshops with Flotsam the Fool’s Circus.
There will also be a fancy dress competition and kids disco with live music from 7pm.
The Pumpkin Party is supporting East Devon bloodbikes charity Devon Freewheelers and the Devon Air Ambulance.
Entry is free, but donations are welcomed.
A spokesman for the event said: “Come one come all to our annual Cranbrook Pumpkin Party! We have pulled out all the stops and are all set for what will be a Hallowe’en steampunk circus horror fest!
“Our party begins at 3pm with a spooky children’s disco and fun games, and throughout the afternoon there will be illuminated fairground rides.
“We have the amazing Flotsam the Fool’s Circus with us who will be providing free circus skills workshops for little ones, and later on in the evening they will be wowing us all with steampunk circus LED stilt walking!
“There will also be the chance to win one of many prizes kindly donated by The Cranberry Farm by entering our fancy dress competition, so let’s see those amazing steampunk circus based costumes.
“This will all be followed by live music throughout the evening from Dumbo’s Feather, an impressive Celtic, Irish and Scottish themed band, Emily Howard, an amazingly talented guitarist and vocalist from Devon, and Cliff Rescue and the Helicopters, who will be finishing the night with some rock and roll!”
The Pumpkin Party has been organised by residents Todd Plant, Karen Thomas, James Mardon, Aarron Davies and Christopher Wilson, with the support of Cranberry Farm.
