Every Nov. 1, the day after Halloween, the famous Pumpkin Parade takes place at Sorauren Park. With close to 2,000 pumpkins on display in recent years, the Parade is a neighbourhood and even regional highlight of the season. From witches and cats, to politicians and world events, the artful jack-o-lanterns represent the spirit of Halloween and also the spirit of the times.
Add your pumpkin to the parade. Please place your pumpkins along the edge of the path around the park. Big thanks to City of Toronto Solid Waste and Parks, Forestry and Recreation for picking up the pumpkins for compost the following day.
