Sorauren Pumpkin Parade – Wednesday, November 1st at Dusk

Posted on October 25, 2017

“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.”


As you know, there are several pumpkins that are brought to Sorauren Park for the Pumpkin Parade. Please help restore the park to its regular condition by helping out with the clean-up. The clean-up will take place:

November 1st – 10PM to 11PM
November 2nd – 7AM to 9AM

Bins will be placed for pumpkin waste at the end of the event.


The original Pumpkin Parade returns Nov. 1
