The Pumpkin decorating competition takes place at Loughborough Market on Friday October 22 from 10am until 2pm.

The pumpkin decorating competition took place on Friday October 22, 2021.

Children were invited to come down to our stall outside Loughborough Town Hall and decorate a pumpkin in preparation for Halloween.

There was also entertainment at the stall in the form of a face painter and a magician.

Pumpkins were supplied and the best decorated pumpkin on the day won a prize. We will be contacting the winner in the near future to arrange for the collection of the prize, which includes a big pumpkin to take home for Halloween.

Every child who entered was given a tote bag containing some goodies.

Overall we had 135 entries into the competition. It was very busy and a lot of fun!

The event was to celebrate the 800 years anniversary of the Loughborough markets and fair.

Pictures of some of the entrants can be found on the Charnwood Borough Council Flickr page.
