Halloween Family Fun Day at Aintree Racecourse

We were thrilled to support our client with their Halloween entertainment! On the 29th of October 2023, Big Foot Events conjured a spooktacular experience for Aintree Racecourse’s Halloween Family Fun Day.

The Brief

Our client wanted to create a spellbinding Halloween-themed family day out, aiming to be the top choice for families seeking the ultimate spooky soiree. They sought to provide a plethora of spine-tingling activities designed to entertain both the little ghouls and the grown-up ghosts.

The Challenges

Having collaborated with our client previously for their 2022 Halloween family fun day, we were able to assess the successes and areas for improvement from that experience. Using this valuable feedback, we were able to identify some of the challenges we would face creating 2023’s event.

In 2022, the event was significantly oversubscribed. In response to the overwhelming demand, we needed to create an event that embraced a large amount of visitors and had plenty of exciting activities for guests to enjoy.

As well as focusing on drawing new visitors to the racecourse, we needed to provide new and exciting activities for returning families.

The Solutions

Building on the successes of 2022, we elevated the event to spookier heights! As a result of identifying the challenges we had previously encountered, we proactively implemented improvements derived from our experience and invaluable feedback received.

To accommodate the quantity of visitors, we provided a PA and Host to assist with queue management and to captivate and entertain guests between activities.

We also provided additional entertainers and activities – from an energetic dance flash-mob to a range of Craft Workshops. There was an array of spooky activities to appeal to new and returning visitors.

The Results

We made our client’s event the go-to haunt for families seeking the perfect Halloween adventure, brimming with entertainment and excitement! This year’s festivities surpassed the success of 2022.

Guests were encouraged to be best dressed and come in fantastic Halloween costumes to enter a costume competition. This brought out the most fantastic and imaginative ensembles! Six talented Face Painters worked their magic and transformed little ones into their favourite spooky creatures and characters!

For those seeking thrills, families hopped aboard our spooky Ghost Train and Teacup Ride! The Halloween Prop Trail beckoned visitors with spooktacular photo opportunities, guiding them through the highlights of the family fun day.

Adding a dash of surprise and dance flair, Wednesday, Morticia, Gomez, Pudsey, Xavier, and Enid dazzled guests with an unexpected dance flash mob! The energy didn’t stop there; Wednesday herself offered dance lessons to eager participants before they entered a lively dance competition.

Craft enthusiasts found their haven with our Workshops. We provided a vibrant colouring station and the chance to ‘Craft your own Spider’. These hands-on activities provided a delightful opportunity for families to unleash their creativity.
