To get them in the spirit for Halloween this weekend, guests at Wimpole Estate carved up a (trick-or)treat at Home Farm.
Children got the opportunity to design their own pumpkins, with some pretty spooktacular results.
Visitor experience officer Tim Casey said: “After last year, we thought our pumpkin carving would be popular, but this weekend we had more than one hundred pumpkins carved by families.
“It was a real half-term Halloween hit.
“The sunshine on Sunday particularly brought the visitors out, with lots of families enjoying a walk in the park and woodlands. The colour on the leaves on the trees is gorgeous this year.”
If you’re interested in designing your own pumpkin at Wimpole, the workshops will be running until Sunday.
You don’t need to book in advance, you can just turn up and have a go.
