Today is your final opportunity to experience some Halloween magic in Toronto and clearly, the city saved the best event for last. To make use of all the leftover jack-o-lanterns on porches and doorsteps all over the city, Toronto is hosting over 50 separate pumpkin parades this evening.
Parks in every corner of the city are clearing space for the annual event. Even parks across Canada are joining in with parades of their own. The event has been such a success in Toronto for the last 14 years that Montreal and New York City are also hosting their own versions today.
City staff are so prepared for today's pumpkin festivities that they've even launched an interactive map that shows you where each parade is taking place. There are dozens in the downtown core, and clusters in the Beaches, Scarborough, Etobicoke and North York. Here's a quick look:
But the biggest parade is being hosted tonight in St. James Park, located at 120 King Street East. There you'll not only be able to observe the glowing pumpkins in all their glory, but also roast marshmallows over a campfire while listening to spooky stories and music, plus tons more. You can get all the details here!
You can even search for the parade nearest you by typing in your address, which also shows you what time the festivities begin. So clear your schedule tonight, grab your carved pumpkin from your doorstep and go enjoy the city's grand finale to Halloween season!
