Halloween and farming will come together again this Saturday when the Bermuda National Trust holds its third annual FarmFest event on South Road, Devonshire.

The free event is being held at the Trust’s stunning ten-acre property of Devondale at 33 South Road, Devonshire from 10am to 4pm.

Attendees can park at Lagoon Drive opposite the Botanical Gardens on South Road and will be shuttled every ten to 15 minutes by minibus to Devondale.

Bermuda National Trust President Alana Anderson said: “We’ll be hosting game stalls, a haunted house, arts and crafts, food stalls, a tractor display, 3-legged races, a fortune teller, a bucking bull, pony rides, a costume parade, a mummy competition and much more!

“FarmFest again offers a fun day out for families before Halloween and will expose visitors to a beautiful open space flanked by farm fields and an historic home, all protected by the Bermuda National Trust.

“I also want to again thank Debs and Dave Norman, Devondale’s tenants, who have done an amazing job preparing for the day.”

The Trust will also be drawing its annual Raffle at 3pm at the event. Up for grabs is a BMW i3 electric car. Only 1,000 tickets are being sold for the car, and ticket sales have been strong.

Tickets are being sold on Wednesday and Friday outside Atlantic Jewellery in the Washington Mall. Tickets can also be purchased from the Bermuda National Trust’s headquarters Waterville opposite Aberfeldy Nursery on Pomander Road, Paget or by calling 236-6483. 

Admission to FarmFest is free and tickets will be available for games, food, stalls and rides. There will also be plants and baked goods for sale.
