Come out to Florence Gell Park on November 1st with your jack-o-lanterns and candles, and marvel at the wonderful carvings of your neighbours from 5-8pm.
It’s that time of year again! Join us at Sorauren Avenue Park on Friday Nov 1 for the annual pumpkin parade. Please bring your carved pumpkins starting at 6pm to put them out on display.
The Sorauren Pumpkin Parade has become a huge success with more than 1500 participating pumpkins in the event in past years. However, with the growing success of the event, we need more volunteers and support from the community to make sure the event can continue.
6:00pm – 7:00pm – Put your pumpkins out on display
6:00pm – 9:00pm – Pumpkin Parade
9:00pm onwards – Collect your pumpkins for disposal
All participants are responsible for ensuring that their pumpkins, candles and other materials are disposed of properly at the end of the night.
Candles must be extinguished prior to placing pumpkins in bins. All tea lights must be removed prior to placing pumpkins in bins as the aluminum foil surrounding tea lights are not compostable.
The City will provide green bins and garbage bins in the park to help with clean up. Please make sure to dispose of your pumpkins in the bins provided, or to take them home and put them in your green bin.
Interested in volunteering?
We are looking for volunteers to support with the event coordination and clean up. If you’re interested in volunteering, please email our office at email@example.com.
