Pumpkin treasure hunt returns to streets of Leamington for Halloween

A SPOOKY pumpkin treasure hunt will lead families through Leamington town centre this Halloween – with a chance of prizes at the end.

The Pumpkin Path, organised by BID Leamington, will take families round a choice of two trails to collect clues from 46 shops in the town centre. It will run from Saturday (October 23) to Sunday October 31.

Once all the clues are gathered, participants can work out where the final postbox is to post their entry and be in with a chance of winning the grand prize – £200 worth of treats from a range of Leamington businesses.

For those who gather ten or more clues, there will also be a number of runners-up prizes worth £300 in total – including vouchers from Fat Birds Café, free burgers and fries from Libertine Burger, games donated by Coventry Building Society, and more.

Alison Shaw, project manager at BID Leamington, said: “This year, we’ve split the path into two trails because of how many Leamington shops are taking part, and it’s great to see plenty of new businesses getting involved this year.

“We’d love to see families get into the Halloween spirit by dressing up in their spooky outfits, having a go at finding all the clues and reaching the final postbox in its secret location.

Entry forms are available at all participating shops and at the Upper Mall of the Royal Priors Shopping Centre from today (Thursday).
