BA i360 launches Pumpkin Carving Competition ahead of Halloween
Published: 08 Oct 2019
With the spooky celebration fast approaching, BA i360 is on the hunt for the best carved pumpkins that its visitors can offer, creating a spooktacular display of decorated pumpkins for all visitors to enjoy, giving plenty of inspiration for some family fun carving at home.
The competition features four age categories for ages 5 – 8, 9 – 11, 12 – 15 and 16. Participants are being asked to bring their decorated pumpkins to the Upper Deck at BA i360 by midday on Wednesday 30th October.
Each category will have two runners up prizes and one winner, these will be announced later in the afternoon on 30th October.
All the winning carved pumpkins will then be available to view in a display on our giant pumpkin – the BAi360 pod - from 10am on Halloween. Alongside the winning creations will be special exhibits from local artists.
The winning entrants will be invited to take a BA i360 flight to see their displayed creation whilst taking in the spellbinding views of Brighton. The winner of each category will receive four BA i360 annual passes that are worth up to £120, runners up each receive two annual passes worth up to £60.
Communications Manager, Laura Pauley, says: “We think the pod looks a bit like a huge pumpkin which gave us the idea for the competition. We are really excited to see how crazy and artistic people will go with the design of their pumpkin. We are encouraging everyone to share their pumpkin journey across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts by tagging #PumpkinsOnThePod.”
‘Pumpkins on the Pod’ display is available to all visitors booking BA i360 flights on 31st October - Sunday 3rd November. All other carved pumpkin entries will be placed in the Upper Deck for visitors to enjoy, adding further excitement of the spooky holiday and creating an Instagram-worthy shot.
The viewing tower will be lit orange on the evening of Thursday 31 October to mark the competition.
Pumpkins cannot be returned once entered into the competition
