We have changed registration for the parade this year. We are still staging the morning of Saturday the October the 16th on Blue Line Road between Thompson and Old 24!

The Parade leaves staging area at 12:30pm!

Please email pumpkinfest@pumpkinfest.com if you plan to put a float in!

Some COVID Rules from the health unit to follow:

  • Floats should not be throwing the candy from the float – this will encourage the kids to run into the street and congregate while getting candy, and it can also injure attendees. 
  • The float ‘candy givers’ that would be walking around and distributing candy should have access to hand sanitizer, wear masks as a good COVID safety precaution, and only distribute pre-packaged candy items. 
  • Promotional flyers are also considered low risk and while we would encourage them to be limited distribution – the above would apply.
  • You can get a lot of ‘clip-on’ type sanitizers that people could have on their person or in their pocket when needing to be used. 

Here is the Pumpkinfest Parade route!
