Giant 50 Foot Inflatable Pumpkin Invades Pumpkinfest

This Pumpkin is expected to become a Social Media Phenom on Thanksgiving Weekend!

Move over giant ducky, a new mammoth is in town and he is looking to capture the hearts of Torontonians. He is big, he is orange and he loves photos. This Thanksgiving weekend, Pumpkinfest Toronto and Celebrate Ontario bring a 50 foot inflatable pumpkin into Downsview Park for Pumpkinfest 2019. With free grounds admission and parking, anyone can head over and take a pic with this giant gourd and post it tagged with #BigPumpkinInThe6ix.

While checking out the giant pumpkin, visitors can enjoy other free activities at Pumpkinfest, including pumpkin bowling, a variety of stage shows and the inflatable corn maze. There is also a pumpkin patch with hundreds of pumpkins to choose from and a hay bale feature area. Other features of Toronto Pumpkinfest include: the Food Truck Frenzy, with Toronto’s premiere food trucks; an educational animal display and petting zoo with Hands on Exotics; as well as a slew of contests, including pumpkin carving, pie-eating, costume and Little Miss Pumpkinfest. For a fee, PumpkinFest also has face painting, inflatables, rides and games in the kiddie midway, arts and crafts with Crafting for a Cure, a baked goods sale, vendors and pony rides.
