Some 50 parks across Toronto will glow orange on Nov. 1 as neighbourhoods say farewell to this year's jack-o-lantern collection with a community pumpkin parade.

A Toronto tradition since the first pumpkin parade was organized in Sorauren Park in 2004, parades are now hosted in parks across the city for one last spectacular display of artful autumn gourds before getting tossed in the green bin. 

This year's pumpkin parades in the east end include Leslie Grove Park, East Lynn Park, Kew Gardens, Phin Park and Withrow Park. See a full list of pumpkin parades around the city.
