Top 4 Things To Do In October | John Fowler Cornwall Holiday Parks


Falmouth Oyster Festival | 08-11 October

Kicking things off is the Falmouth Oyster Festival, a stalwart in the Cornwall events calendar!

The festival highlights the start of the oyster dredging season and specifically celebrates the last remaining traditional oyster fishery in Europe, still dredging by sail and hand punt.

Held annually, festivities are traditionally opened with a cookery master-class from a celebrity chef – this year that's down to Chris Eden of The Driftwood Hotel in Portscatho, who was the first Cornishman to be awarded a Michelin Star for a restaurant in Cornwall.

Over the four days, more than 40,000 visitors are expected in Events Square, taking in cookery demonstrations, local produce, the ale marquees, live music, oyster shucking competition, the boat race plus lots more!


British Stand Up Paddle Surf Championships | 10-11 October

The next event is right up my street and should be an awesome watch – The 2015 BSUPA National Surf Championships.

The Championships return to Watergate Bay for a seventh year and take place over two days, between 10-11 October.

The competition remains the UK's premier SUP event and rivalries are fierce as competitors aim to be crowned champion – with the added incentive of a spot at next year's ISA Stand Up Paddleboard World Championships.

Over the two days competition will be split into three categories – Open Men's, Open Women and JNR Under 16.


Newquay Zoo Boo Halloween Party | 31 October

As if I wasn't going to throw in a Halloween event?

Newquay Zoo is back to host one of the most popular Halloween parties you can find, and it's just a few miles from our holiday parks in Cornwall!

The team at Newquay Zoo are busy plotting lots of spooktacular activities that the whole family can get involved in, including a trick or treat trail, witches' brew and some gruesome gruel!

The party takes place Saturday 31st October, from 6.30pm-9.30pm. The theme is spooky carnival and fancy dress is obviously required! Tickets are £7.50 per child, £9.95 for adults and under 3s entry is just £3.


Halloween Spooktacular At John Fowler Holidays | 31 October

Here at John Fowler Holidays we love Halloween just as much as the next person, and we have a frightening amount of entertainment and activities lined up at our Devon, Somerset and Cornwall caravan parks!

For a limited time we're offering a spooktacular £100 off all Halloween weekend breaks, taken between 30th October and 2nd November.

This is our end of season finale and you don't want to miss out - we have special Halloween kids' club activities, competitions, fancy dress, table decorating and the much anticipated Stripey Spooky Show on the Saturday night!
