Ripon pumped up on pumpkins for Halloween half-term
Last updated Oct 17, 2022

Ripon BID is holding a series of pumpkin-themed free events this half term.

There’ll be a spooky pumpkin trail around the city, free magic shows at the Curzon and a best dressed pumpkin competition as part of the Halloween entertainment for families.

The pumpkin hunt takes place from October 22 to 30 with cash prizes.  The magic shows on October 22, 26 and 29 are already fully subscribed.

The Best Dressed Pumpkin competition will run in conjunction with the trail. It is sponsored by Valentino’s Restaurant and will offer the chance for one creative participant to win a family meal for four at the restaurant.

Businesses taking part in both the pumpkin hunt and the best dressed pumpkin will be displaying posters in their windows.

The events which are organised by the Ripon Business Investment District aim to increase footfall and spend in Ripon.

The BID has urged businesses to send it their half-term and Halloween offers so it can promote them via its website.
