Dobbies in Ayr is getting ready for the Hallowe'en season.

The local garden centre is inviting children in Ayr to its great value Little Scare-lings event this Hallowe'en, guaranteed to get them feeling pumpkin-tastic with a treasure trove of family-friendly activities. 

Great for kids aged 3-10, the October 26 to 29 event is action-packed and has something special in store for those hunting for the perfect pumpkin to take home and carve.

Kids can also strut their spooky style and take part in the garden centre’s annual scare-a-thon to be in the chance of winning a prize for the best dressed.

Little Scare-ling attendees will sink their fangs into Hallowe'en treats, pumpkin-themed activities and games.

With plenty options for even the fussiest trick-or-treaters, children will have the choice of fish fingers, chicken nuggets or plant based goujons, served with chips and garden peas, or a cheese and tomato pizza with vegetable sticks.

Adults can enjoy a selection of soup and sandwich pairings or a slice of cake.

Sticky chocolate orange, blueberry Victoria sponge or a nutty coffee and walnut cake ensure the parents are spoilt for choice.

Families will be invited to visit Dobbies’ very own miniature pumpkin patch. Here children can take a pumpkin home, carve it up using Dobbies’ guide and create their own personalised pumpkin for welcoming trick-or-treaters.

Sarah Murray, who created this year’s event, loves Hallowe'en and can’t wait to welcome Little Scare-lings along for the event.

She said: “We’re really excited about this year’s Hallowe'en event in Ayr and warmly welcome kids of all ages to get involved with our pumpkin extravaganza.

"These events are always extremely popular with our regular Little Seedling Club attendees, so please book in advance to save any disappointment. It’s a fang-tastic way for families to get together this Hallowe'en.”

Tickets for Little Scare-lings are now available for Dobbies’ Club Members, priced at £9.99 per child and from £3.95 for adult tickets.
