Event description

Description

Pumpkin Prowl starts with kids games like pumpkin bowling and body part hockey and craft and activity booths hosted by My Free Hamilton, The Urban Zoo, Messy Play Studio, Determination Martial Arts, Erich's Cupboard, and more!

After the kids have played all the games and made fun Halloween crafts we all go trick or treating together around the neighbourhood to houses who have agreed to participate and hand out candy.

Pumpkin Prowl was created by Larry Pattison, HWDSB Ward 3 Trustee when he realized he would be missing out on experiencing Halloween with his two daughters due to a shared parenting schedule. Not wanting to miss out on that magic, he created Pumpkin Prowl. Held a week before Halloween, it's a night of fun games for kids followed by trick-or-treating around the neighbourhood. Participating homes put a 'Pumpkin Prowl' sign in the window so the Pumpkin Prowl parade knows which doors to knock on.


So kids can have 2 Halloweens and parents can enjoy the fun with them! There are extra surprises as well with the occasional super hero dropping by and coffee and hot chocolate supplied by Gage Park Diner to keep everyone warm and energized!

This is the 4th Pumpkin Prowl and promises to be bigger and better than ever!

"This Pumpkin Prowl event is a wonderful initiative, a solution for parents to enjoy the special magic that is Hallowe'en with their children. This is a solution. This is community coming together..." Mary Lisa

"In the middle of a big city, it felt like we were in our own little community tonight. Thank you to the organizers for all the work in making the Pumpkin Prowl available to us. The kids loved it!!! Lovin' the sense of community." - Shelley
