It was all treats and no tricks in and around Weston this weekend as groups of friends and families celebrated the traditional spooky holiday.

The Helicopter Museum proved only the brave could face the haunted helicopter while over at Puxton Park people were dared to handle some creepy-crawlies.

At the Winter Gardens, even adults joined in on the fun, dressing up as skeletons, werewolves and murderers for the Shuffle event.

While Weston Museum invited children to get creative at its craft event.
