The annual Discover Bundoran pumpkin carving competition and pumpkin parade takes place on Wednesday 31st October from 3:30pm to 5:30pm at the Atlantic Apartotel followed by the pumpkin parade between 5:30pm & 6pm to Bundoran Community Library.
Come along with the whole family for an enjoyable and creative afternoon out, get your face painted and maybe win a prize for the best pumpkin! We’ll also have a photo booth area so make sure to come in your fancy dress! We will have a bunch of Halloween related props for you to use so it’s the ideal opportunity to get that spooky family photograph to remember your halloween break in Bundoran. Prizes, provided by local businesses, will be on offer for the best family dress costumes!
The prizes are:
1st – Plain Pumpkin – Family pass to Eclipse Cinema
1st – “Bling” Pumpkin – Family pass to Eclipse Cinema
2nd – Family voucher for Campview Farm Ballyshannon
3rd – Family meal voucher for the Galley
First Prize – Castle Adventure Open Farm voucher
2nd/3rd/4th – Supervalu chocolate/sweet hamper.
Admission is just €10 for a family or group. One pumpkin will be provided per group/family as well as cutting tools and markers.
There will also be colouring sheets.
This is a very popular event so please arrive early to avoid disappointment as we have a limited amount of pumpkins.
The parade will happen weather permitting and will go from the Atlantic Apartotel as far as Bundoran Community Library. Show off your creation to the visitors and residents of Bundoran and then have them displayed on the steps of the library as we light up Station Road with a sea of pumpkins on Halloween evening! The event will be finished by 6pm.
