The flame won’t have to go out so quick on jack-o’-lanterns this year in Oakville.

Your spooky gourd can live to light up one more night at the Oakville Pumpkin Parade on Tuesday, Nov. 1.

Local residents can bring their creative Halloween pumpkin carving to the Oakville Museum’s Erchless Estate and enjoy a night of storytime and treats while town staff light the pumpkins and line the paths near the Coach House.

“I hope you’ll join us for the Oakville Pumpkin Parade and help make the event a successful one that showcases our community’s spirit and creativity,” said Oakville Mayor Rob Burton.

“Community events help bring people together and the Oakville Museum’s Erchless Estate grounds is a great, picturesque location for people to connect for a fun, family night out.”

The event is being done in partnership with the Oakville Public Library and Oakville Historical Society.

Residents can drop off their Jack-o’-lantern at the Oakville Museum’s Erchless Estate between 4 and 5:30 p.m.

Dress up in your Halloween costume and get ready for a night of stories, treats and the parade.

Following the event, pumpkins will be given to local farms to help feed their animals.

Residents are reminded to plan ahead as parking at the Oakville Museum is limited. You can use town’s map with real-time parking information to find available parking in the area.
