Huge crowds partied in the streets at the Spalding Pumpkin Festival and parade on Friday.
Coun Gary Taylor, a portfolio holder with organisers South Holland District Council, said: “I’ve already had feedback from people telling me this was the best pumpkin festival ever.
“The town centre was filled with people of all ages enjoying themselves.
“The carnival element of the parade provided by Transported really added a vibrancy to the event which was topped off with a spectacular firework display. The atmosphere in the town centre throughout the day and evening was fantastic proving that Pumpkin Festival remains one of the highlights of the event calendar. We’d like to thank David Bowman for his support again this year.”
David Bowman Pumpkins Ltd sponsors the event – supplying pumpkins to schools – and the festival is supported by Spalding and Welland Rotary Club, Spalding Lions, Tulip Radio and Transported.
During the day, shoppers were browsing around charity stalls and youngsters were helping Crescent traders find wild animals in their windows in a fun competition. Highlights of the night were the big parade and the fireworks spectacular.
