More than 80 stalls offered food, arts and crafts, vintage and collectibles, home wear, fancy and novelty goods with a ghoulish twist.

It was the first of two 'super Sundays' when Widnes outdoor market is open for shoppers.

A Sunday of Americana to celebrate the the Tomahawks coming to Widnes for the World Cup will be held on Sunday, November 3, from 10am to 4pm.

You can meet Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper and Barry, a real life bald eagle, who will be available for pictures alongside Tom the eagle, the mascot of the Tomahawks.

Classic American cars will be on display and children can enter a ‘find a dollar’ competition.

The Panama Jazz Band will be entertaining shoppers with their swing and dixie music.

“It is a real community events. Why not come down and check out the stalls? There really will be something for everybody."

Free parking is available and most local buses stop beside the market.
