Cardiff Council had organised a Halloween party for local children on the Plass, with a Trick or Treating route around local businesses.
The most popular stop was the Mermaid Quay Tourist Office, where long queues had quickly formed.
Groups of children were led into the spooky, cobwebby interior where a sheet-clad ‘ghost’ popped up suddenly from behind the counter, humming eerily and making them scream with delighted fear. Then a headless, handless man dropped candy into their bags before a handsome vampire ushered them out.
At the end of the evening, Ianto removed Nosy’s sheet.
“That was fun!”
