|Annual Northfields Allotments Pumpkin Trail|
Popular event that attracts thousands takes place for the fourth year
October 3, 2019
Thousands of people are once again expected to attend Northfield Allotments’ annual Halloween Pumpkin Trail.
The trail On Saturday 26 October from 3pm-7pm, will be lined with some 150 carved pumpkins, creating a circular trip around the site past witches’ grottos, scarecrows, ethereal spirits and many other spooky decorations. As darkness falls, the path through the site will be lit up.
Amongst other ghoulish treats, there will be tasty homemade cakes and tea, produce from the allotments, as well as a barbeque, and our famous mulled wine. Entrance is free but a donation is welcome
This will be the fourth Halloween event and organisers say they're looking forward to seeing visitors in their costumes and makeup. Dogs are welcome on a lead, but werewolves are asked not to howl in case it disturbs the neighbours!
Advice for those who arrive after 5pm is to bring a torch as some areas of the site can be quite dark. There is a buggy park but visitors are asked to leave them at home if possible as the paths are more suited to wheelbarrows than buggies.
Previous Pumpkin Trails have attracted up to 4,000 visitors, many in costume, to Northfields Allotments, which is an important historic site dating back to 1832 – making it London’s oldest allotments – and a vital part of Ealing’s natural heritage.
