Spooky season is upon us and it’s just a few weeks until Knutsford’s favourite Halloween event is back for three hours of spooktacular fun!
Knutsford Pumpkin Path returns this year on Halloween evening, Monday 31st October, from 4pm to 7pm. The event will be held in Knutsford Town Centre, in a closure area of King Street, Minshull Street, Church Hill and Regent Street, which are closed to traffic to facilitate the event.
The event is very kindly sponsored by Redrow and The Mere Nature Kindergarten, whose generous support has helped to make this 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 Steet 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. You can also enter our Pumpkin Carving competition and drop your pumpkin off here in Wallwood from 4pm to 5pm, and the Mayor of Knutsford will judge the best ones at 5.15pm (with prizes up for grabs for the top three!)
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 old Belle Epoque building).
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.
