"We are all getting together to do something really special for Halloween.
"This is the first time we have done a Halloween event and I am really looking forward to it.
"We have already sold a lot of tickets and people should think about coming because it is a safe way of having fun.
"The Lollipop Express will be decorated appropriately to celebrate Halloween and will run from the pier to Pleasure Island and back with stop-offs in the middle."
There will be plenty to do across the two days including fancy dress competitions to take part in.
Manager of Kingpin arcade, Gary Campling, added: "This is going to be a really good way of celebrating Halloween.
"Not many people answer the door to trick or treat calls these days so this will be a good fun way of still doing something.
"As a resort we try to put things on all year round and this is something to add to that.
"We will be having a free scary-themed Punch and Judy show plus competitions for the best dressed children.
"I am really looking forward to it."
There will also be an opportunity to ride on a haunted steam train.
Adam Cowood, from Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway, said: "With the ticket you will also get a return ride on a spooky themed train.
"The light railway is also one of the official stops so it is well worth coming.
"This is the first time we have all come together and all the businesses are looking forward to it."
Tickets cost £3.50 for the Tuesday and £4 for Wednesday.
They include a return journey on the Lollipop Express, a return journey on the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway, a disco at Pleasure Island and much more.
The events start at 6pm both days and tickets are available from all venues mentioned and Cleethorpes Tourist Information.
