Leamington’s Pumpkin Path returns this month for a ghostly glowing programme of events.
This interactive event for all the family, which is organised by BID Leamington, has two trails where families can search for clues that appear on little orange pumpkins in 66 of Leamington town centre’s shops windows from Saturday, October 22 to Monday, October 31.
The clues will reveal the place to find the ‘Scary Post Box’ where pumpkin hunters should post their entry form for a chance to win some fabulous prizes in the prize draw.
In the Prize Draw, visitors have an opportunity to win over £1,000 worth of prizes, which have been kindly donated by Leamington’s businesses.
These include an afternoon tea experience at Enchanted, fitness treatments from Therapy and Fitness, and gift vouchers and prizes courtesy of Middletons, Hotel Chocolat, Bistrot Pierre, Esquires Coffee, Ember Home, Cotswold Trading, and Hart Restaurant as well as a £200 gift voucher for Lee Longlands and a £200 Gift Experience at Venture Photography plus many more.
Everyone who collects ALL the clues will be entered into the Grand Prize Draw to win £200 of treats for the family.
The ‘Scary Post Box’ closes at 5pm on Monday, October 31, with people still able to post their entry forms to BID Leamington in Park Street before Wednesday, November 2.
As well as the Pumpkin Path, there are plenty more spooktacular thrills around town including the Spookysaurus Dinosaur Show.
It features two 30-minute shows on the Upper Mall in Royal Priors on Sunday, October 23 plus an opportunity to experience roaring dinosaurs up close and personal during their walkabouts around town (check website for times).
