Sorauren Park Pumpkin Parade
Every Nov. 1, the day after Halloween, the world-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. It starts at dusk, with the busiest times after dinner. There is no competition but will your pumpkin get noticed? And what will be the dominant theme this year?
Place your pumpkins along the inside edge of the path around the park. We are hoping to completely encircle the park this year, and we can do that by not doubling up on both sides of the path. Plus, if we get everyone moving in the same direction around the park think pleasure skating rink, it should be even more enjoyable.
