WHAT: Please drop off your carved jack o' lantern near the flag pole at Bayou Park Beach prior to 5:30 pm on Sunday, October 30th.
Return with your family to the Bayou Park Beach between 6:00 - 7:30 pm to parade by a Halloween spectacle of glowing neighbourhood pumpkins. Last year we had over 30 jack o' lanterns on display! Kids are welcome to wear their costumes.
Don't forget to come back between 7:30 - 8:00 pm to pick up your jack o' lantern to display at your own house for Halloween the next day!
Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and pre-made goodie bags for all ages will be available if you wish to take a treat home (courtesy of the BPRA). We will also be collecting canned food donations for the Orillia Sharing Place Food Centre in order to help fight food insecurity in our community.
Don’t feel like walking? Drive by the park and take in the sight!
