Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

FOTC Pumpkin Parade

The Friends of Tooting Common, London Borough of Wandsworth, have been holding an annual Pumpkin Parade since 2011.  In 2022 this was held on the afternoon of Sunday 30 October, starting at 3.30 p.m.  As usual the pumpkins were divided into three classes for judging: most artistic, scariest and funniest.  About 40 pumpkins were displayed, up from less than 25 in 2021.

There were also home-made fancy dress competitions for children aged under 5 and over 5, and an opportunity to make willow star decorations.

At the end of the event people with pumpkins were invited to join a short parade.
