Leamington's Pumpkin Path leads the way in ghostly programme of events for Halloween

Leamington Editorial 20th Oct, 2022   0

PUMPKIN Path trails are returning to Leamington as part of a ghostly programme of events for Halloween.

The interactive event, organised by BID Leamington, has two trails along which families can search for clues that appear on little orange pumpkins in the town centre’s shop windows from Saturday (October 22) to Monday October 31.

The clues will reveal the place to find the ‘Scary Post Box’ where pumpkin hunters can post their entry form for a chance to win over £1,000 worth of prizes donated by local businesses in a prize draw.

The ‘Scary Post Box’ closes at 5pm on Monday October 31, with people still able to post their entry forms to BID Leamington in Park Street before Wednesday November 2.

Download the form via the Royal Leamington Spa website or pick up a copy from the Royal Priors Shopping Centre or Visitor Information Centre between October 22 and 31.

And as well as the Pumpkin Path, there are plenty more spooktacular thrills around town including the Spookysaurus Dinosaur Show.

It features two 30 minute shows on the Upper Mall in Royal Priors on Sunday (October 23) as well as an opportunity to experience roaring dinosaurs up close and personal during their walkabouts around town.

The Royal Priors Shopping Centre has set up a Spooky Selfie Station in their Lower Mall from October 22 to 30.

There will be a giant spider, inflatable pumpkins and spooky stilt walkers in Regent Court on Saturday October 29 and Sunday October 30. While a face painter and scary stilt walker will be at the Sunday Market on Parade between 11am and 3pm on Sunday October 30.

Alison Shaw, Project Manager at BID Leamington, said: “It’s lovely to mark the spooky season in Leamington with so many different events and activities.

“With a range of amazing prizes to be won in the prize draw, the Pumpkin Path over the two routes is fun for all the family.

“We are looking forward to families exploring Leamington’s town centre for spooky clues to uncover the mysterious post box.

“We hope that these events will attract families into the town centre and bring plenty of fun and laughter this month.”
