Sorauren Pumpkin Parade another glowing success (globally)


More than 1,500 luminescent orange artworks (before Nathan stopped counting) lined park paths, depicting:

  • Local politics (of course)
  • The passing of Lou Reed
  • The characters from the Big Bang Theory
  • Death Stars, circling sharks, witches, cats, spiders, goblins
  • A pulsating pumpkin brain
  • An editorial comment about the imminent arrival of a certain national coffee-and-donut chain on Roncesvalles
  • And so much (now mulch) more… has some great photos.

It was another great year of amazing jack-o-lantern art at the Sorauren Pumpkin Parade. The parade has sparked pumpkin parades across Toronto, one in Montreal, and even commentary in Denmark.

City crews did a wonderful clean-up job the next morning. Many thanks to Toronto Solid Waste, Parks, Forestry & Recreation, and Councillor Perks for arrangements and forklifting!
