The cry of ‘It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!’ has been ringing out in our house for at least a month (basically for as long as the shops have been stuffed full of all things ghoulish and ghostly). As hard as we try to explain that it’s not actually Halloween for another couple of weeks, the three year-old is having none of it. So rather than fight it, we might as well embrace it and get on with celebrating this spooky time of year as best we can. First up is the Pumpkin Festival at Piglets Adventure Farm Park, which we’ll be checking out this weekend. As well as all the usual Piglets activities, there are some Halloween treats including 10,000 pumpkins and gourds (us neither!) to choose from, spooky story-telling, pumpkin carving, Halloween fancy dress parade (judged at 3pm every day), a hook a pumpkin game, fields of fright, a trailer ride to the pumpkin patch, a creepy cottage and much more. Sounds like enough Halloween fun to tide us over until York Maze’s Halloween event opens on the 26th October. Time to get cracking on our costumes.
Pumpkin Festival – Piglets Adventure Farm Park – 10am to 5.30pm on the 19th & 20th October and every day from 26th October to 3rd November – Adults £5.75, children £6.75, family ticket £23 (pumpkins not included in the entry price). For more information, visit the Piglets website.
