Pumpkins on Parade 2018




If you want to show off your jack-o-lantern one last time, take it to a Pumpkins on Parade event, and recycle it in style! Toronto and GTA Residents are invited to drop off their carved pumpkins for all to admire on Thursday, November 1, 2018. Not only is it a spooky and fun way to say goodbye to Halloween, but all pumpkins are recycled and composted!

These pumpkin parades are being hosted in parks in and around the city...
