November 1. Halloween is over, and the city is filled with leftover pumpkins galore. Before heading off to the afterpatch, they enjoy one last shot of glory at the numerous community pumpkin parades held across Toronto.
East Lynn Park served as the display area in my neighbourhood.
There were many variations on the classic jack o’ lantern design, including this one that could be a fall version of a snowman.
A pair of his and hers pumpkins with retro flair.
People passing this pumpkin couldn’t resist humming the Super Mario Brothers theme.
Some classic Halloween icongraphy in this cluster.
But the change in commercial seasons was already apparent in nearby stores. Stacks of fruitcake which may not be enjoyed for nearly two months greet shoppers heading into the Valumart next to Woodbine station…
…while Dollarama is filled with Christmas supplies.
So let’s enjoy a few final moments with the pumpkins of Halloween 2019.
