What is it?
Thousands of pumpkins are growing in the Pumpkin Patch at Willows Farm Village just waiting to be picked during the October half term. Each child who visits during its Pumpkin Festival will be able to harvest their very own free prize pumpkin.
Visitors can take their orange bounty home or become a ‘pumpkin Picasso’ in the Willows Carving Cavern; there’s even the chance to win a daily prize for the best carved pumpkin. Little ones can also get creative in the Willows Arts & Craft Area, creating their own pumpkin masterpieces.
Children can then take part in the Willows Pumpkin Olympics, including the ‘Pumpkin Obstacle Race’, ‘Roll a Pumpkin’ and ‘Pumpkin Relay’ races – with a souvenir certificate for every child taking part. Willows will also play host to a group of spine-tingling creatures; the stars of the ‘Zootacular’ animal shows. From slimy snakes to wiggling millipedes, children can learn all about their favourite creepy creatures in time for Halloween, with shows taking place daily.
