It was the first in-person event from the Regal Heights Residents’ Association (RHRA) in more than a year and a half – and people were ready to celebrate.
More than 400 kids and adults streamed into the Santa Chiara Park on Saturday, October 23 for the association’s annual Halloween Pumpkin Carving.
The RHRA worked with the Northcliffe Village Residents’ Association and the office of City Councillor Ana Bailão and provided pumpkins and safety knives for the free event. In order to keep things safe, all participants had to wear a mask and carvers were kept well separated.
For the first time, the event included live music by local musicians.
“It’s wonderful to finally be getting together again in person with people from the neighbourhood,” said RHRA Chair John Keating. “We still have to be cautious, but it’s a glimpse of what’s to come once the pandemic is over.”
Special thinks to Rona Home & Garden, Stockyards location for the generous discount on the pumpkins!
One thought on “Pandemic Fails to Squash Pumpkin Carving Enthusiasm”
Thanks to the two associations for the event. My granddaughter just loved it. She was intrigued by the live music and even sang in some spots.
The D’amico family also wants to thank the community for the love and support showed us. Very healing for us.
We appreciate the mention of our pinnacle fundraising event the “Turtle Project” . Hope to see many of you at Meridian Hall on December 3, 2021
