2017 Great Burke Mountain Pumpkin Giveaway


Blog by Rebecca Permack | November 2nd, 2017


It's become one of the most anticipated community events on Burke Mountain. An annual tradition. A fall fixture just before Halloween to slingshot everyone in the neighbourhood into the Fall spirit. It's the Great Burke Mountain Pumpkin Giveaway! This was the 4th annual giveaway, and together with our co-sponsor Tracey Ridout of Scotiabank Home Financing, we had face-painting, colouring stations, a kids costume contest and we gave away 250 pumpkins! Below are some of our favourite photos from the event, but first, our costume contest winner and runner-up!

The winner of this year's costume contest is Burke Mountain’s Chief Aviator Blaise! He climbed to a comfortable cruising altitude of 77 ‘Likes’ and put it on autopilot.

The whole event was well attended, and everyone had smiles on their faces despite the cold rainy weather.
