BUSINESSES are getting in the spooky spirit across Leamington by donating prizes for the annual Pumpkin Path.
A record of more than 50 retailers will take part in the event, which sees residents go on a trail around the town centre leading to a prize draw to win treats.
The path, which is organised by BID Leamington, is now in its fifth year and is an alternative to trick or treating.
BID project manager Alison Shaw said: “The Pumpkin Path will be slightly different this year due to restrictions around covid 19 but it will be bigger and better than ever before thanks to more businesses taking part and more prizes being donated.
“Instead of people having to go inside shops, cafes and restaurants to find clues, they can either search for pumpkin stickers featuring clues on the windows of the outlets taking part, or can participate online via the trail on our website.
“It’s always really popular especially among families with younger children and there’s some great prizes to be won, particularly this year.
“Despite the current challenges facing our town centre retailers, more of them than previous years are supporting the Pumpkin Path and we are very grateful for all of their donated prizes, which range from coffee and cake to gift cards and family meals out.”
The Pumpkin Path takes place during October half term from Saturday (October 24) to Saturday October 31.
Entry forms will be available in the Royal Priors Shopping Centre or visit www.royal-leamington-spa.co.uk to take part online.
