It's the time of year to eat pumpkins, not just carve them! Check out the Pumpkin Festival:
The Festival's aim is to “Squash food waste” by encouraging people to eat rather than discard their Halloween pumpkin’s flesh. The message is simple:
Carve it, Cook it, Eat it – Don’t bin it!
The Oxfordshire Pumpkin Festival is a celebration of food: creatively encouraging people to think about the food they throw away, challenging preconceptions and teaching new skills.
