Newquay businesses thank those who took part in Halloween parade
People of all ages turned out in their thousands to either participate in or spectate, for the first Newquay Zombie Crawl in three years. Thrill-seekers experienced the streets of the coastal location as an otherworldly spooktacular Zombie-flooded world in the most frightening, but fun, event of the year!
Newquay Business Improvement District (BID) organised this year's edition of the Zombie Crawl, reviving the terrifying tradition for a fresh start in 2022. Newquay BID Manager Mark Warren said, "Our 2022 Newquay Zombie Crawl was utterly incredible. Thousands of people of all ages, and visitors and residents alike, took to the streets, and our endless stream of Zombies and Halloween-costumed crawlers impressed everyone with their scariness. Businesses up and down the town were telling us all how happy they are to see this key event firmly back in our Newquay calendar and with this year's phenomenal turnout and support, we'll confidently be going WAY bigger next year."
Mark continues, "There are so many people, organisations and companies to thank, but most of all, and most importantly, thank you to the Newquay community that came out in force. Other Newquay Zombie gratitude goes to all of the following and more: Royal British Legion, Newquay Town Library, The Griffin, Newquay Lions, Towan Blystra Lions, Newquay Rotary, Blystra Arts, Hotch Potch, Bounce Dance Academy, RNLI, Newquay Land Train, Morrisons, SSS Silent Disco all the Newquay businesses that supported, especially those who dressed their windows and their teams, and all the radio, TV and newspaper crews who also supported us with their incredible coverage. Thank you all, and here's to the Newquay Zombie Crawl 2023!"
