Halloween events in Lincolnshire.

Halloween will be here soon and there is lots going on up and down the country but I have decided to focus on things going on in and around Lincolnshire. 

Pumpkin Picking can be a cheap, fun day out. There are plenty of photo opportunities and it's always good to get some fresh air.


Hall Farm Park - Caistor Rd, South Kelsey, Market Rasen LN7 6PR

Visit this October half term for lots of Halloween fun on the farm! Choose your own pumpkin from the pumpkin patch and play Halloween games. Help Winnie the witch find her missing spell ingredients on the spooky woodland walk! There is also all of their usual activities on offer including a ride on their decorated trailer and yummy seasonal delights in the tearoom.

Pink Pig Farm - Holme Hall, Holme Lane, Scunthorpe DN16 3RE

During October term Pink Pig Farm are having their Pumpkin festival.Take your wheelbarrow to the pumpkin patch (with lots of great photo ops), choose your own pumpkin then return to the carving barn to create your masterpiece. Windle the witch will be on hand to teach you how to make potions and there will be spooky food and cakes in the Greedy Pig cafe and playbarn cafe. The Pumpkin patch runs from 11am to 3pm.

Uncle Henry's - Grayingham Grange Farm, Gainsborough DN21 4JD

Uncle Henry's home of the famous Maize Maze will be running their pumpkin picking throughout October half term. Pick the perfect pumpkin from their pumpkin patch then make your way back the garden to the carving station where they will have all the tools you need to get your pumpkins Halloween ready! £5 per ticket and the ticket admits 2 people to the pumpkin patch to pick 1 pumpkin. 

The 5 acre Maize Maze has had a Halloween make over for Ocotber Half Term. A motley crew of monsters have found their way into the maze. Have you got what it takes to find them all and get back out of the maze without them getting you? The Maze is open every day during half term and is suitable for all ages.

Do you have any plans for Halloween?


  1. These sound amazing. I would love to go on the Halloween Spooktacular at the railway! xxx

  2. I love that some of these places have free or really cheap activities to do, it really helps large families out. I too like the idea of the train journey. Where I am we are a bit short on Halloween experiences for the kids. Happy Halloween from my family

  3. These all sound really great. It seems like everything in my local area is booked up already, you have to be quick these days, I'll be looking in August next year! The spooky railway sounds great, I'd be up for that. xx

  4. They look fun, we'll be going to a Halloween party and of course trick our treating
