Great Pumpkin Trail 2019: in photos

0

 

The pioneer village at Muskoka Heritage Place was once again transformed into a trick-or-treaters paradise on Halloween night for the 31st annual Great Pumpkin Trail. Although Mother Nature was beginning her preparations for the first snow of the season, the skies cleared (mostly) for a few hours for the candy bonanza.

Each of the village’s buildings were decorated by sponsoring businesses and families, but only one would take home best-decorated-building honours. (Scroll down to see this year’s winner, chosen by Deputy Mayor Karin Terziano.)
