A trip to the Pumpkin Patch - Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park

Last year Bob and I visited a Pumpkin Patch in Ledbury. Just the two of us and why not? We also decorated the house (AD)

I love Halloween. I've always decorated the house, me, the dog and even the kids when they were still interested.

I was disappointed to discover they don't do Halloween in South Africa, but I still decorated the table with a more autumnal theme.

On moving to Dubai, I was super excited to see that Halloween in Dubai was done in full swing. 

This years plan involved a trip to the Pumpkin Patch at Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park with Bob of course, decorating the house and a Halloween party over the weekend for our 2 year old grandchild and the neighbours children, pumpkin carving and answering the door to trick or treaters on Sunday evening.

Do you do Halloween?

Next up I'm getting ready for Christmas, but won't be decorating the house until December 1st. Do your decorations go up earlier?


  1. My first visit to a Pumpkin Patch this year with my grandson. We didn't need a wheelbarrow - we thought! But in a field with so many different species and colors it was like picking strawberries when you just can't ignore the next beauty! So we strugggled back to the car with a barrowful. But childrens faces and pumpkin pancakes have been worth all the effort!

    1. oh it's an awful lot more fun when you go with grandchildren, far less stressful

  2. Aww what halloween fun visiting a pumpkin patch, happy Halloween :) X #kcacols
