Pumpkin Parades have become a natural extension of Halloween festivities across the City of Toronto.  Each year after the sun sets on November 1, community members converge in their local park to see their neighbourhood’s Jack-o-Lanterns shine one last time.  It’s a fun way for neighbours to celebrate an end to Halloween together and a simple way for communities to dispose of their pumpkins.  Pumpkin parades make the Halloween spirit shine and this Toronto-born phenomenon is quickly spreading!

Pumpkin Parades are produced by the City of Toronto in partnership with Park People. Pumpkin Parades information for 2018 will launch on September 4. Learn more about booking a Pumpkin Parade.
