Traders on Beverley’s Saturday Market are hosting a Halloween Pumpkin Competition with some so great prizes up for grabs.
Traders at the market will be aiming to find the most creative and also best-carved pumpkins. They will be doing this on Saturday, 27 October.
This competition is calling out for residents to get carving and creative. Pumpkin carving is something that is a tradition at Halloween.
Lisa Gray, liaison officer for the Beverley Group of the National Market Traders Association, thinks it is a great idea. She says stallholders will get in the spirit of Halloween.
“We thought it would be a great opportunity to spark creativity in the local community for both children and adults,” she said. “We can’t wait to see some fantastic pumpkins.”
“The traders will also be getting into the Halloween spirit by decorating their stalls for the occasion, so it will be a really fun day for everyone.”
Open to all ages, the pumpkins will be displayed to the public with judging scheduled to take place at 12.30PM.
To take part all you have to do is bring your decorated pumpkin to the market between 9 AM and midday.
The competition will be divided into three sections. Firstly 12 years old and under, 13 years old and over and the most creative design.
