SPOOKY season is here, with little ghosts and ghouls looking forward to the big day on October 31.

Whether you’ll be celebrating with a party, trick or treating, or watching fang-tastic films it wouldn’t be Hallowe’en without pumpkin carving.

There are some spooktacular options for people looking to get a pumpkin Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.

Greenland Farm, Bonvilston:

Greenland Farm, which is in Bonvilston near the A48, is welcoming pumpkin pickers throughout October with more than 20 varieties of the spooky fruit available.

A new Hallowe’en trail has been launched at the farm including spooky bales and photo opportunities. Visitors can grab a wheelbarrow and explore the trail while searching for their perfect pumpkin.

There will also be the option of twilight pumpkin picking, with the field to be lit as the sun sets so visitors can search under the stars.

Visitors can indulge in mint hot chocolates and other treats, with hot food served by JOL’s.

Booking is essential. Tickets can be bought online at valepickyourown.co.uk

Pumpkin picking patch, St Nicholas:

Light refreshments and hot drinks will be available, along with portaloos, and parking is free.

This will be open from 9.30am to 4pm on:
