6th Annual Pumpkin Lighting in Carlton Park

From Shelly at Carlton Park, posted to the Carlton Park People's Auxiliary Facebook page:

PLEASE JOIN US for our annual Pumpkin Lighting in Carlton Park (on Edith Avenue) on Tuesday, November 1st, 2011, starting at 6:30 p.m.and continuing to midnight.

Bring your jack-o-lanterns (with a tealight inside), line them up around the splash pond, and light them in a dazzling display of Halloween creativity that will delight children and adults alike.

At midnight, the lights will be doused and the pumpkins left at the park for the City to pick up the next day for composting.

Children have a wonderful time dashing about and playing with each other in the twilight, while adults have a chance to visit and get to know their neighbours in this fun community-building event.

So invite your friends and neighbours, bring a thermos of hot cocoa or cider and your pumpkins, and come enjoy this creative community gathering before we all hibernate for the winter!

This event keeps growing every year, so be sure to check it out. There are some photos of the 2009 Pumpkin Lighting posted on this site here.
