Laois Pumpkin Patch
30th October @ 11:00 am - 31st October @ 3:00 pm
A hugely popular Halloween event in Laois is back again this year. The Pumpkin Patch once again promises a weekend full of community spirit, as well as a few witches and ghouls. The only charges are for the locally grown pumpkins, as well as the tasty treats, but the rest of the fun is entirely free. The organisers are offering pumpkin picking in the patch, a haunted maze, fun and games, pumpkin carving, local musicians, cute photo opportunities, and fancy-dress prizes.
