Knutsford Pumpkin Path is an annual Halloween themed trail event held in Knutsford Town Centre at Halloween. The event was initially organised by a group of residents alongside its ‘sister’ event Knutsford Bunny Hop. The Pumpkin Path was handed over to the Town Council in 2017 who have organised the event since.
Families can find the pumpkins hidden around the town centre in shop windows, each of which has a letter carved into it. You note down the letter on your entry forms and completed entry forms can then be posted into dedicated post boxes to enter a prize draw!
This event is traditionally held on Halloween evening between 4-7pm with roads closed on King Street and Minshull Street, and the event taking place across King Street, Minshull Street, Regent Street and Wallwood with fun at games at the Market Hall on Silk Mill Street and some involvement from businesses on Princess Street and Canute Place.
As well as the trail families can enjoy lots of extra entertainment on the night including singing and dance performances, spooky characters available for photo opportunities, Halloween themed window displays, competitions and other activities. Feel free to dress up too if you’d like – there might even be prizes for this on the day!
Plenty of our amazing local businesses take part during the event so look out for their ‘Pumpkin Path’ posters in their windows for special promotions and giveaways!
