A trail of pumpkins will be carving its way through Leamington town centre to lead families on a treat of a treasure hunt to celebrate Halloween.
£500 worth of prizes will be up for grabs with 37 businesses taking part in this year’s Pumpkin Path organised by BID Leamington from Saturday, October 27 to Wednesday, October 31.
The treasure hunters will be challenged to collect at least ten hidden clues from participating outlets, with treats on offer (only on Wednesday 31st October if they are in fancy dress at selected shops) along the way, to find the mystery location of the brown postbox for their entries to be posted.
Those who solve the riddle and collect all the clues will be entered into a grand prize draw to be in with the chance of winning a meal (2 adults/ 2 children), a hamper plus games and puzzles for the family.
Other prizes including cinema tickets, family meals, goody bags have all be kindly donated by local business including Libertine’s Burgers, Berylune, Spa Centre, Nandos, Procaffeinate and Ember Homes to name but a few.
Alison Shaw of BID Leamington, said: “The Pumpkin Path was so popular when we held it over the last couple of years and with even more town centre businesses taking part this time, we hope it will tempt even more Halloween hunters.
“More than 150 families got involved last year and we’re hoping to top that this time around. Everyone really entered into the spirit with some fantastic fancy dress outfits being worn as they searched for the hidden clues.
“As well as being a fun alternative to the traditional trick or treating at Halloween, it’s a great opportunity to look around Leamington’s wonderfully diverse range of retailers, traders and restaurants.”
Entry forms will be available at participating outlets and in the Upper Mall of the Royal Priors Shopping Centre from Monday, October 22.
The Pumpkin Path will run from 9am to 5pm over the four days with entries closing at 5pm on October 31.
