PUMPKIN DAY

Categories: Events

Saturday, 26th October 2013

We will be holding a market on Severnside and would particularly like to hear from food and drinks producers and growers as well as our usual stalls . Trade or charity welcome.

Can you offer apple tasting. cider, perry and fruit juices ? Do you make toffee apples? Perhaps you have pumpkins for sale. All idea’s welcome. Are you a pumpkin carver? There will be a prize for the best decorated pumpkin on a stall and also a competition for children to decorate a pumpkin or carve a pumpkin lantern.

All the town shops are invited to put decorated pumpkins in their windows, the more original the better and these will be judged during the day. Would you like to organise traditional seasonal games – apple bobbing etc.
