This year 's Parade than tripled the number of pumpkins over last year's event - making this year a smashing success, ha ha! Let's hope this is a continuing tradition. Happily, there is plenty of room to expand!
Many thanks to all involved, particularly to:
- Our student volunteers, for keeping the pumpkins lit and taking photos,
- Ward 17 City Councillor Cesar Palacio, for helping with pumpkin pick-up arrangements,
- Frank Ruffalo and staff at the JJP Community Centre, for letting us use the entrance to the Centre, providing help with cleanup, and helping to promote the event.
- MP Jonah Schein, the Corso Italia BIA and local schools for helping us to get the word out.
A few of our many favourites -
|Thanks to the early birds who set up their pumpkins before we had even arrived|
|This family has some serious talent - they carved an amazing Darth Vadar last year|
|That red pepper? |
This family has a new baby and didn't have a chance to pick up a pumpkin, but didn't want to miss out!
