The 4th Annual Pumpkin Prowl is being held on Saturday October 21st from 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm at Belview Park - 181 Belmont Avenue, Hamilton, ON L8L 7M5 in Crown Point West.

Pumpkin Prowl is a Halloween event for families who, for various reasons (separation, divorce, work schedules, etc.), do not get to have Halloween together. Created by Ward 3 HWDSB Trustee Larry Pattison and the dynamic late Kate Andrus, Pumpkin Prowl was developed as the answer for those parents, grandparents, and guardians who do not want to miss seeing their little ones dress up as their favourite hero, ghoulish character, princess, or superstar and ring doorbells giddy with anticipation. It also gives kids and their families an opportunity to have an extra Halloween as all are welcome to join in on the fun!

This year’s event starts at Belview Park and sees kids and parents play games like “body part” hockey with the “Ghoul ol’ Hockey Game” and “Glow-in-the-Dark Skull” ring toss as they sip hot chocolate and coffee courtesy of Gage Park Diner.

This year’s event will also include craft and activity stations by Hamilton Tool Library, My Free Hamilton, Messy Play Studio, Determination Martial Arts, Erich’s Cupboard, and The Urban Zoo will be bringing their Travelling Zoo! After the games and activities, the Pumpkin Prowl gang will prowl the neighbourhood in costume in search of participating trick-or-treat homes indicated by a Pumpkin Prowl window sign.

"In the middle of a big city, it felt like we were in our own little community tonight. Thank you to the organizers for all the work in making the Pumpkin Prowl available to us. The kids loved it!!! Lovin' the sense of community." Shelley (previous Pumpkin Prowl event attendee)

This year’s Title sponsor is Jet Propelled and we’ve received overwhelming community support from local Hamilton businesses. In addition to sponsorships, we also have a special super hero surprise for the kids courtesy of Penny Pincher Costumes Inc.

At the event, the Pumpkin Prowl team will be collecting non-perishable food donations for Mountain Kidz Club and Erich’s Cupboard.

All kids and their families are welcome to join in on the fun!
