On the occasion of Samhain, a festival with Celtic roots usually celebrated from October 31st to November 1st, Afaga organised the first pumpkin contest. The pumpkins have been decorated by the people of the centre helped by occupational therapists.
Each centre where the association carries out cognitive and functional stimulation workshops has prepared and decorated a Samhain pumpkin. These centres are the Beiramar Day Center and the Comprehensive Care Centre in Vigo, the Therapeutical Unit in Porriño, and the centres of Mos, Tui, Nigrán and Salceda de Caselas, all of them located in the province of Pontevedra.
These original pumpkins are exhibited in the Country House of Mos until the 3rd of November. Visitors can vote for the pumpkins they like the most.
The winning centre will receive a cheque to buy material.
