Creative children carved 250 pumpkins at a Halloween party in Windsor on Saturday.
The event, supported by The Windsor and Eton Town Partnership and the Windsor Contemporary Art Fair (WCAF), took place at Royal Windsor Shopping centre.
Deborah James and Sarah McAllister from the WCAF ran the pumpkin carving workshop from 1-3pm and helped hundreds of youngsters create their pumpkin masterpieces.
Children’s entertainer Mr Marvel also had youngsters and parents alike gasping in amazement as he performed a bag of tricks during three shows throughout the afternoon.
Partygoers also took part in a treasure hunt which saw them look for pumpkins hidden across the town centre.
The Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service ran a chocolate tombola on its stall and the Macdonald Windsor Hotel sold scrumptious snacks to raise money for the charity.
Paul Roach, Windsor and Eton town manager, said: “It seems to get bigger every year.
“This is the first time that Halloween has fallen on the Saturday and the weather is great. It’s like the planets have aligned and created the perfect conditions.”
