"The festival also provides a great bookend to the Fal River Festival, which always kicks the season off with style."
The guided walks include Nordic walking and foraging, while a charity walk for Target Ovarian Cancer will take place on Saturday, October 26.
There will also be a special screening of the hit Pixar movie, Monsters University, on the King Harry Ferry on Thursday, October 31.

"Hopefully it shouldn't be too spooky out on the King Harry Ferry in the middle of the river!"
Other events planned for the festival include spooky tours of Pendennis Castle, Halloween workshops at National Maritime Museum Cornwall, tours of Trebah Garden and seasonal cookery course at Philleigh Way.
