The event gets underway at 6pm and families are encouraged to dress up and join in a pumpkin parade by bringing along their own carved pumpkins.

Signal Radio's Dicky Dodd Road Show, will play host to all the witches, ghouls and monsters, with 12 cauldrons being lit before crowds are wowed with a spectacular fireworks display.

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "This year's event comes with a Halloween twist.

"We've reduced advanced ticket prices and hope families come along and enjoy the fun.

"I'm sure it will be a night enjoyed by young and old alike."

The best fancy dress will win a prize with categories for under 8s, under 16s and best adults.

As well as the ghostly fun, the crowds will, for a few minutes, be reminded of the fallen heroes who died in the Battle of Loos 100 years ago in October.
