This year I discovered that there was going to be a “pumpkin parade” in the east of the city, much closer to where we live than in Sorauren Park in the West End of Toronto where we have gone in the past.
This was the second annual event for East Lynn, and while the park is smaller than Sorauren there was a very good turnout and so plenty of Jack-o’-lanterns to see. I brought along my camera with it’s fastest lens and a tripod.
