Halloween Family Events and Staycations

Safe to say Autumn, and all it’s festivities, is well and truly

Safe to say Autumn, and all it’s festivities, is well and truly here! Pumpkins, conkers and crunchy leaves are forming the backdrop to daily life and it’s really quite nice!

Pumpkin Patches and Halloween Festivals / Events / Celebrations are happening and being prepared for throughout the country. It’s amazing to see the creativity and imagination that businesses and organisations are displaying each year.

Over on Instagram @thefamilyedit, we have been sharing Autumn / Halloween events that we have come across ourselves and some that people have kindly told us about. We’re saving them to Highlights so take a look when you get a chance and see if there’s anything happening near you.

Many of the events are created by Family Businesses and it’s great to support them. A lot of time, effort and money goes into preparing for such an event, so it’s always nice to see them do well.

If you are a family businesses and you are doing something to celebrate Autumn / Halloween, make sure to let us know and we’ll add it to Stories .. give families a chance to enjoy themselves and support a family business!

Equally, if you know of a pumpkin patch or Halloween pop-up happening near you, let us know and we can make sure other families know about it too!

It’s a time when lots of us go on staycations so it’s great to know what’s going on in all corners of the country!

And that then just leaves one question .. to carve or not to carve?! When pumpkins look so pretty, the temptation is to leave well alone! We shall see .. we need to pick them first!
