Spalding Pumpkin Festival
Pumpkin festivities took place during October last year, including the new Spalding Pumpkin Festival 'Light Night' event at Ayscoughfee Hall Gardens.
Spalding's annual Pumpkin Festival took place on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th October 2022, celebrating local horticulture and harvest with an array of games, craft activities, live entertainment, food and gift stalls for the whole family to enjoy.
Organised by South Holland District Council, the festivities were hosted in the beautiful Gardens at Ayscoughfee Hall , with the festivities continuing in Spalding town centre the following day.
On the Saturday visitors were able to buy a wide selection of delicious food, crafts and gifts from various special stalls, alongside our fantastic usual Saturday market traders. The games continued here amongst street entertainment, live performances and scarecrow competition, with a 'ride on pedal tractor corner' as well.
There was a chance for children to meet Cinderella and see her beautiful carriage, before taking a family stroll down 'Pumpkin Street' with incredible professionally carved Pumpkin sculptures decorating Bridge Street.
The South Holland Centre also joined in with the fun with lots of activities in the centre.
