Cadell Harvest Festival Could be Scrapped

Cadell harvest festival

The Cadell harvest festival, famous for its giant pumpkin competition, could be scrapped, due to a lack of volunteers to run the event.

Organiser Jason Lukacs is conducting a survey on social media, asking if the event should be re-branded, moved away from Easter or cancelled altogether.

The festival has been running for almost 20 years, and injects money into the towns economy thanks to interest from businesses and farmers.

The giant pumpkin competition however, is safe from the axe, with organiser vowing to continue the competition even if the Harvest Festival is axed.
