Last month, our community came together for an exciting weekend of autumn fun during our two-day pumpkin-picking extravaganza that brought together over 700 excited attendees. The event was a delightful celebration of the spooky season, filled with laughter, creativity, and family fun.
We turned the events hall into a spooky playground with plenty of fun and excitement to keep the little ones entertained and busy. We had loads of fun games, including our witch hat ring toss and tin can bowling that tested the aim and skill of our little visitors. Creativity was flourishing at the Design Your Pumpkin Station; a hub where pumpkins transformed into canvases for young artists. Each pumpkin became a unique expression of creativity and imagination, some spooky, some cookie, and some with 10 eyeballs!
For the adventurous pumpkin pickers; we had a bouncy castle, haybale maze, and soft play areas on offer to help burn off some of the boundless energy for the young attendees. Seeing our happy attendees running, jumping, climbing, and playing together not only made the event an absolute bash; but also allowed new and old friendships to flourish.
Of course, no autumn gathering would be complete without a moment of warmth, and our hot chocolate bar provided just that. Families gathered to savour some decadent hot chocolate, topped with delightful garnishes, offering parents and children alike a well-earned sit down.
As each session drew to a close, the grand finale awaited – the Pumpkin Picking Extravaganza. Families ventured on the walk to our pumpkin patch, enjoying our various spooky photo-ops along the way, to choose their very own pumpkins to take home.
As the sun sets on our autumnal fun, we’d like to say a massive, heartfelt, thank you to all who joined us, making this celebration a truly magical experience. We had an absolute blast and we hope you did too!
We’ll see you again at Pumpkin Picking 2024!
