Show off your ghoulish gourds

DEADLINE: October 17th

A pumpkin parade in your local park is a great way to get together with neighbours and share all the ghoulish gourds you’ve carved for Halloween. Pumpkin Parades take place on November 1.
The City will waive fees for local non-profit groups, including park friends groups, that obtain a permit and clean the park afterwards. Groups are responsible for covering the insurance costs.
The deadline for applying is coming up soon: October 17. To host a pumpkin parade, contact your councillor’s office as they will be able to guide you through the process of getting the fees waived for the permit.  Contact
 Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, Ward 27

Information from PARK PEOPLE.

Park People is the catalyst for better parks across Toronto. Our parks are not as good as they should be and we know that when residents get involved, parks get better. That’s why we are working with nearly 100 park friends groups, city workers and other partners to plant more trees and gardens, fix broken infrastructure and get more people out celebrating their communities through parks.
