Harvest season brings about a myriad of ways to celebrate the humble pumpkin. The resilient and robust autumn squash lends itself perfectly to Thanksgiving, but nothing is more synonymous with pumpkins than Halloween.

This year’s sixth annual Pumpkins in the Park event, hosted by the Town of Coaldale and North & Company Law Office will be held on Friday Oct. 29 from 6-8 p.m. at Millennium Field.

Cindy Hoffman, manager of community services in Coaldale, said the event began with North & Company LLP in 2016 and has since become a partnership between the law office and the Town of Coaldale in more recent years.

She says the response to participate this year has been “overwhelming” and said over 100 pumpkins were requested for the event. Reflecting on previous years, Hoffman said, “it’s a lot of fun.”

“The pumpkins are all lit up, we will have little treat bags for the little ones,” added Hoffman.

“We are encouraging kids of all ages to come out in their costumes, and take a picture of themselves beside their favourite pumpkin, and they can send it in.”

There will be a random draw held after photos have been submitted to the Town of Coaldale. The event will feature live music from local Lethbridge musician, Amy Allred. The Town of Coaldale also thanked North & Company LLP for their continued sponsorship of this local event.
