Is it really almost Halloween?

Oh my it’s been a frightfully long time since we’ve posted on this blog

😱

Despite all the scary news happening daily, the parks are filled with people trying to enjoy fresh air, family and friends safely. Parks have in fact become focal points for our communities and need our support more than ever before. If you are still subscribed to this blog it means you care about parks too! While the Friends of Roxton Road Parks hibernates a bit longer due to covid, consider subscribing to ParkPeople. They often have suggestions and stories about how to make a positive difference in your park. Since we will not be having our Annual Halloween “Night of the Living Fred” perhaps one of these ideas from ParkPeople (below) might appeal to you and your family. 

Stay well, 

Jill & your Friends at Roxton Road Parks

Join and share Park People’s Online Pumpkin Parade, on Sunday, November 1 @ 2-3 pm. People can submit photos of their carved pumpkins and the finalists will be displayed on a slideshow. There will be a prize for the best pumpkin.

Help create an online pumpkin parade by using the following social media handles and hashtags. We will write a blog showcasing some of these images afterward.
