Friends of Tooting Common organise mass pumpkin carving competition

As in previous years, the Friends of Tooting Common (FOTC)’s annual Pumpkin Parade will be awarding prizes for the funniest, scariest and most artistic carved pumpkins and for home-made fancy dress.

Hundreds of carved pumpkins will be displayed on Tooting Common this Sunday, October 29. The event will also include storytelling and a parade of lit pumpkins.

Peter Ramell, Chair of FOTC, said: “The pumpkin parade is one of the highlights of the year for FOTC and each year is bigger and better. Children and adults of all ages are welcome to bring their carved pumpkin creations”.

The event starts at 3.30pm at the café on Tooting Common. Entry per pumpkin is £2.

Earlier in the afternoon, from 1pm to 3pm, there will also be a Pumpkin Party at the Tooting Community Garden at 5 North Drive SW16 1RL.
