Woodpark Pumpkin Tour

Get your carving tools ready. Below are the instructions on how to participate.


Send an email to Woodpark.events@gmail.com that contains your name, address and if you would like, share a bit about your pumpkin carvers. The email needs to be sent before October 27th to ensure that your pumpkin will appear on the tour map at www.woodpark.ca

Carve your pumpkin

Get a pumpkin and carve away. Pumpkins will be sold in New Orchard Park On Saturday October 24 from 10:00am – 2:00pm. Pumpkins and some prizes are being provided to us by Saunders Farm. They normally sell them at $12 but we will be selling at $10. We will have 40 pumpkins and if they don't all sell on Saturday, we will be back on Sunday.


Your pumpkin should be ready to be displayed by October 28. Once your pumpkin is carved email to woodpark.events@gmail.com a close up picture of your pumpkin and if you wish, send a second picture of your pumpkin along with your carvers or an action shot of the actually carving process. Additionally, name your pumpkin and describe the fun you had carving it. Both pictures will be posted to www.woodpark.ca

Rally your votes

Feel free to campaign on behalf of your pumpkin. Post pictures to the Woodparkers Facebook page and /or tweet them out using the hashtag #woodparkpumpkintour. Maybe give your pumpkin a voice and tweet out and Facebook your calls to vote. Get creative!

Place your votes

Voting will be opened on October 28 and close on October 30.All pumpkins will compete in three categories, Scariest, Funniest & Most Original. You can compete in one or all three of them. Take the pumpkin tour using the map on the website or just view the pumpkins on the website. Voting will be done by online at www.woodpark.ca. Only one set of votes per email address will be counted so don’t send more than one email. However every member of your family with a unique email address can vote.


Use the voting button on the voting page (only available when voting opens). These buttons will create an email to us. Please include your street name in the email as we have to ensure that we can differentiate the votes from outside Woodpark. Votes from outside Woodpark will be capped at 25. This is to prevent anyone from trying to make the contest a viral event. It is meant to rally community spirit  and raise the profile of Woodpark. Votes will be tallied on Halloween morning and winners will be informed by 2pm.

Special Bonus Category

A number of Woodparkers have indicated interest in decorating their homes. There will also be a vote on best decorated house. Please include your selection in your email by indicating the address of the home along with a picture of the house.
