Halloween at Center Parcs and at home

Whether you are at Center Parcs during Halloween or spending it at home, you can get in the spooky season wherever you are. Create some DIY Halloween decorations, print off your favourite ghoulish images of some ghosts, spiders and witches and stick them around your house, or lodge! If you can’t make it to our Grand Halloween Party create your own at home, get the whole family dressed up and put on your favourite frightening soundtrack and dance the night away to the Time Warp!

We spoke to our wildlife expert here at Center Parcs for some of his top tips for disposing of your pumpkin after Halloween. If you are spending Halloween at Center Parcs, please dispose of your pumpkin properly, dont display your pumpkin outside but we still love seeing all your creations from your lodge windows - prop them up on the windowsill for guests and colleagues walking by to admire. There are many ways you can reuse/purpose your pumpkin after Halloween, the first being using it for cooking, whether you roast it or make a soup - pumpkin is the perfect seasonal treat! You can also cut it up and leave it out for wildlife or put it in the compost. Check with your local animal shelters as they may use then for feed for the animals.
