Pumpkin Parade at Withrow Park 2013

It was another great night at the Withrow Park Pumpkin Parade.  An unofficial count has us at just over 400 pumpkins.  Here are some of pictures from our fun night with friends and neighbours in the park.  Mark you calendars for next year- November 1st is Pumpkin Parade night at Withrow Park!


A special thank you to all of the volunteers who helped us place the pumpkins in the bins at the end of the night!  Truth is...that might be one of the best parts of the evening- everyone had fun tossing pumpkins into the bin!

Also, thank you to Pepper for her great Halloween stories for the kids!

And finally, but not least, thank you to Councillor Fletcher for helping us to obtain the permits to make this event happen.

See you next year- November 1st bring your pumpkin to Withrow Park in the evening to join the parade!
