Blair Drummond Safari Park is preparing to launch its Halloween adventure programme - with a helping hand from the lions!

With the park set to offer Halloween adventure activities from Friday October 11, the lions were included in the celebrations and given pumpkins to play with. 

The park will offer activities including trips to a pumpkin patch, a display of giant spider-themed hay bales and fire pits for toasting marshmallows.

And of course, while at the Stirlingshire park you can pay a visit to the 8 lions named Karis, Libby, Reid, Murray, Isla, Thistle, Hope and Faith. 

The Herald:

The pumpkin patch is located next to the giraffe enclosure and has been labelled "quite possibly the prettiest pumpkin patch in Scotland". 

All visitors who visit for Halloween activities will also have access to the rest of the park, including the usual animal attractions. 

The Halloween activities will run from Friday October 8 - Sunday October 31, and you can even buy a pumpkin for £3.
