Join us on the 12th October 2019 for an Autumnal, pre-Halloween pumpkin competition. Sharon, our castle curator gave some of our staff a small pumpkin to nurture and grow for a competition and now the time has come! But we feel our staff need more competition and want to involve you!

On the 12th October 2019 – any child bringing a pumpkin can get in for FREE to Muncaster and they will have the chance to enter their pumpkin into a selection of pumpkin categories. Normal opening hours apply and other visitors are more than welcome to come and cheer on the children and staff!

Catergories are;

1) Heaviest Pumpkin (by weight) – Muncaster staff – but can be watched

2) Biggest Pumpkin (by girth measurement at widest) – Muncaster staff – but can be watched

(Both of these categories must be the Muncaster Pumpkins)

3) Adult Best Dressed/Prettiest (These can be Muncaster Pumpkins or any other pumpkins)*

4) Open Kids Best Dressed/Prettiest (These can be Muncaster Pumpkins or any other pumpkins)*

*For categories 3 & 4 entrants must be in by 2pm on the day.

There will also be a raffle on the day – all raising money for Cancer Research.
