Pumpkin parades will light up Toronto parks on November 1
Next Wednesday, 47 parks across Toronto will emit an orange glow as local residents bid a final farewell to their jack-o'-lanterns with community Pumpkin Parades.
The first pumpkin parade was organized in Sorauren Park in 2004.The parades have since become a Toronto tradition and are now hosted in parks across the city from Birchcrest Park in Scarborough to Centennial Park in Etobicoke. This year's event includes 13 more parks than last year and the idea has spread to other cities including Montreal, New York and towns in the United Kingdom.
