Leslieville Pumpkin Parade

28 October 2011 | 1 Comment

On Tuesday night, after all the Halloween fun is over, what are you going to do with your pumpkin? Take it to Leslie Grove Park (Queen St. East and Jones) to be part of the pumpkin parade!

This has been happening in Sorauren Park in Parkdale for years – neighbours come out, bring their jack-o-lanterns to line the park pathways, and create a gorgeous “pumpkin parade” for all to enjoy and admire.  The next day, the pumpkins are removed by the city.

Come out on Tuesday night and meet your neighbours.  Apparently it starts around 6:00 or 6:30 in Leslie Grove Park.  Bring your pumpkin, and don’t forget a tea light to light it up!

    What a GREAT idea! I usually toss mine in the bin before the raccoons eat it. This is a wonderful alternative. I never heard about this before!
