Pumpkin Parade 22.10. 3-5 pm

Every year, FOBLS organise a fabulous Halloween Party and Pumpkin Parade in the village hall which is very popular with children and adults alike. Children enter a Pumpkin for the Competition which costs £2 per pumpkin which counts as the entrance fee. Adult entry to the event is free. There will be a fancy dress competition for children and we encourage as many of the grown ups to get dressed up as are willing!! Stalls include apple bobbing, the flour challenge, pin the bow tie on the skeleton to name a few. There will also be the chance to win a fantastic  Trick or Treat Cake. There will be hot dogs and delicious chilli on offer as well as a bar. We hope you can come and enjoy this wonderful event.
