CANCELLED: Second day of Laois Pumpkin Patch called off as pumpkins sell out and bad weather forecasted

Laois Pumpkin Patch

Day 2 of the third installment of the Laois Pumpkin Patch has been cancelled at Clonad GAA grounds.

The event took place today and drew huge crowds with great craic had by all.

The action actually got underway on Saturday at a special staging for members of Laois-Offaly Families For Autism.

Today saw revellers enjoy pumpkin picking in the patch, a haunted maze, fun and games, pumpking carving, local musicians, cute photo opportunities, and fancy dress prizes.

But organisers have opted to cancel Day 2 of the event due to two factors.

Firstly, such were the big crowds today, all of the pumpkins have actually sold out.

And secondly, the weather forecast for Sunday is not good.

A spokesperson said: “Unfortunately due to the forecasted heavy rain and the massive crowds today we are completely sold out and regret that we have to CANCEL tomorrow’s event.

“We would like to thank you all for your support and making the Laois Pumpkin Patch the success it is year after year. We hope you had a fantastic day.

“Happy Halloween from us all at Laois Pumpkin Patch. See you next year.”
