Ross businesses are getting spooky this Hallowe’en with a pumpkin decorating competition.

Organised by members of the Ross Business Association (RBA) youngsters are invited to make the most of their half-term break by grabbing a pumpkin and—with the help of a responsible adult—carving it into something delightfully frightful.

The pumpkin competition was launched last year, with a good number of youngsters getting involved. The business association hopes that this year is even better.

Prizes have been offered up by local businesses: Little Chic, Lalena Jewellery, Little Saplings, and others to be confirmed.

Competition categories are: under 8s, 8 to 12 years, 12 and older, and an adult prize.

It’s not just talented pumpkin carvers that are competing, there is also a fancy dress prize.
