Wear orange and green to this year’s Spalding Pumpkin Festival and Parade on Friday.

There will be free entertainment throughout the day (11am to 8pm), with street art, pumpkin carving and craft workshops.

The event celebrates the pumpkin harvest, and there will be recipes and cooking demonstrations showing how to make use of the large orange fruit.

Stage entertainment begins at 4.30pm with the fancy dress contest at 5.20pm – and the lucky winner will ride in the magical pumpkin coach.

The coach will lead the enchanting lantern parade from 5.20pm – come along with your pumpkins, flags, masks and costumes as everyone is invited to join the party.
