Pumpkin Partnership with Forth Valley Students

16 October 2018

HalloWild pumpkin carving scoops prizes for two students.

Artistic students from Forth Valley College carved their names into Blair Drummond Safari Park legend this week by creating the perfect pumpkin designs for the exciting HalloWild events and activities from 13-28 October.


As well as all the usual Safari Park attractions, there will be the addition of a pumpkin patch, lots of kids activities and a very scary Fright Room for youngsters to experience during the mid-term October break. But to get the festivities underway Forth Valley College’s Creative industries students were invited to get to work gouging and slicing, in a competition to make the best designed pumpkin lanterns to put on display at HalloWild.

Up for grabs were family tickets to HalloWild and two prize winners were announced as Melanie Grierson (HND Graphic Design Year 1) and Kirsten Downie (BA Art and Design Year 3).

Steph Toms, Curriculum Manager in the Department of Creative Industries, Hospitality and Tourism, said:

“We were delighted to work with Blair Drummond Safari Park and it was great to see our students really engage with this quirky challenge. Everyone who took part really enjoyed putting their own unique stamp on pumpkin carving and we look forward to working with the park on similar projects in the future.”
