Two weeks until the return of Knutsford’s annual Pumpkin Path trail!


It’s less than two weeks to go until the return of the annual Pumpkin Path trail!

Knutsford families can look forward to some safe Halloween fun as the annual spooky Pumpkin Path trail is due to return to Knutsford from 26th – 31st October.

This year families can enjoy the trail over the space of a week, allowing flexibility for families to choose a time they’d prefer to enjoy the trail at their leisure.

The pumpkins will be placed in shop windows for the entire week – this year there are 15 to find around the town centre which will include Princess Street and Canute Place for the first time.

Find the pumpkins hidden around the town centre and note down the letter carved into the pumpkin and the location on the entry form. Completed entry forms can be deposited at one of the designated drop-off points shown on the maps to enter a prize draw.

There may be some freebies available along the way, but residents should be patient with shops and understand if some do not want to offer freebies this year. Families enjoying the trail should not enter shops or venues unless wanting to purchase items from the business.

Halloween balloons will be dotted around the town centre – please feel free to take one home if you’d like!

Parents should keep children close by at all times as roads will remain open throughout the week, so attendees should be aware of oncoming traffic. No formal event with road closures and entertainment will take place on Halloween evening so attendees should not gather for this.

Families can also enjoy the town council’s new pumpkin carving competition, where photos of carved pumpkins can be submitted to be in with a chance to win special prizes! The competition will be open for entries from 26th – 31st October and entries can be sent to
