5th Annual Pumpkin Lighting in Carlton Park

PLEASE JOIN US for our annual Pumpkin Lighting in Carlton Park (on Edith Avenue) on Monday, November 1st, 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!

You can download a copy of the event poster here.

Last year's event was a big success and very fun for everyone who attended! It seems to be growing every year, so make sure you check it out. Some photos and a writeup about the 2009 event are posted here.

Carlton Park Pumpkin Lighting

Just a word of thanks to the organizers of the pumpkin lighting event last night in Carlton Park. This was the first year my family has attended and we enjoyed it a lot despite the cool weather. Great to see so many people from the Junction Triangle bring their pumpkins out. What a nice way to end Halloween for the kids (big and small). Thank you.
