Scary illuminated pumpkins

Knutsford’s family friendly Halloween event, the Pumpkin Path, returns this Halloween – Tuesday 31st October, from 4pm to 7pm.

The Pumpkin Path takes place on King Street, Minshull Street and Regent Street which will be closed to traffic. This year’s event is very kindly sponsored by Slater & Gordon, Neptune, Knutsford Admin and Travelbag whose generous support helps make the event possible.

Families can collect an entry form in advance of the event or on the night and follow the hints on the included map to find 11 pumpkins hidden around the closure area. All the pumpkins have a letter carved into them; find all the pumpkins and use the letters to spell the hidden phrase.

You’ll find lots of fun on your way, from themed character actors to live entertainment! Fuschia School of Dance will entertain you on King Street near Giovannis at 5pm and 6pm, while Knutsford Beats will sing some songs at the bottom of Regent Street at 5.30pm and 6.30pm.

Don’t forget to visit Wallwood (the wooded area at the top of King Street, opposite Tatton Park) for some spooky fun!

Remember to vote for your favourite Halloween window display on your entry form and drop off your completed entry form to one of the post boxes in Wallwood or at 60 King Street .

The event is free to enter however an optional donation of £1 per child will be graciously accepted to help cover some of the event costs. Entry forms can be collected on the night from one of four desks on King Street and one on Minshull Street.
