M&D’s Scotland’s Theme Park is to host a family fun Pumpkin Festival this Hallowe’en.
As well as picking your very own special pumpkin, the festival will include theatrical storytelling about Professor Madtricks and his wacky experiments as he tries to get back at the naughty pumpkins who keep pulling pranks on him, by Folksy Theatre every 30 minutes.
There will be games for all ages, a Pumpkin trail and an exclusive Pumpkin Express train ride for youngsters taking place throughout the month of October.

Jensen Taylor Connolly of M&D’s told Lanarkshire Live : “The Pumpkin Festival has become a real fixture in the family calendar and is a great outdoor activity for everyone to enjoy at this time of year.
“It’s a real marker that Autumn has arrived.
“We’ve introduced new activities especially for young ones. It’s great to see the children’s excitement and everyone just loves to go home with a pumpkin ready to carve.”
The Festival will take place from October 9 to 17, 21 to 24 and again on 28 to 31 from 11am with last entry at 4pm.
