Seaside town to host first ever pumpkin parade for Halloween
An illuminated children's pumpkin parade will be held for the first time this Halloween as part of Cromer Carnival.
Claire Claxton, who is organising the event with Libby Clohisey, said participants young and old were encouraged to dress up for the event and bring their own carved pumpkins.
She said the parade would start at 4.30pm on October 31 at Cromer's North Lodge Park
She said: "We will take the parade across the top of the Gangway down towards the Red Lion, along the back of the church to the front of the Hotel de Paris up past the amusements, down the Melbourne slope along the prom and finish on the pier forecourt.
"We will hold a competition for the best carved pumpkin. We will also have spooks and ghosts popping out along the route."
