Knutsford Pumpkin Path promises a spooky Halloween!

By on October 2, 2017

The annual Pumpkin Path returns to Knutsford this Halloween for some spooktacular family fun.

On Tuesday 31st October 2017 between 4pm-8pm, the town will open up for a pumpkin treasure hunt with youngsters scouring the town ‘s shops and restaurants to find eleven carved pumpkins which spell out the phrase “PUMPKIN PATH” before submitting their entry forms to Knutsford Heritage Centre’s spooky post box.

Local traders will be decorating their business and providing scares, including Wallwood on King Street which will be decorated with th help of Events2Scare with witches, wizards, lighting and music.



Knutsford’s new town centre manager, Sandra Curties, said: “We are enjoying organising this year’s event with Mr Simms and Knutsford’s business community. It is lovely to see the town come together and enjoy this date on the calendar in such a family friendly way. Like last year there will also be a light-hearted competition to find Pumpkin Path 2017’s Best Dressed Window. Knutsford Town Council will be posting up pictures of the windows on its Facebook page for the public to vote for their favourites! It is another fun way to get involved in the event and helps ensure the whole of Knutsford is decked out in a spooky fashion.”

To enable the Pumpkin Path to take place safely, road closures will be in place as follows: King Street at the junction with Church Hill to the junction with Drury Lane. There will also be parking pay suspension from midnight Monday 30th October from the King Street junction with Tatton Street to the junction with Drury Lane. This is to enable two-way traffic so that residents’ access is maintained. All affected residents will be contacted directly.
