More than 500 people are believed to have come along to a new Halloween event in the Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds.
Yesterday, the gardens were given a ghostly makeover, with craft activities, including pumpkin carving, and various rides.
Drama students from West Suffolk College were also involved, taking visitors on a spooky tour and performing short, interactive comedy sketches.
The event was organised by St Edmundsbury Borough Council with support from sponsors Abbeycroft Leisure and Musker McIntyre estate agents.
A council spokesman said: “This was the first time we have run a Ghostly Gardens event and it was amazing to see so many people coming in to celebrate Halloween.
