Port Hardy saw a great turnout for the annual Pumpkin Walk event. Every year after Halloween people from the community bring their pumpkins to the Port Hardy seawall where they are lit and displayed for everyone to enjoy.

This years event was an effort of the Port Hardy council and supported by numerous volunteers. The Port Hardy Rotary Club helped pick people’s pumpkins up from all over town and set them up along the sea wall.

The Port Hardy Lions Club served free hot dogs and hot chocolate and Port Hardy Fire Rescue made a big bonfire to help keep people warm and cozy. The Port Hardy Chamber, kids from Port Hardy Minor Hockey and the North Island Eagles and many other volunteers also helped to set up, light, and take down the pumpkins.

Afterwards, Fox Disposal came and to pick up and take away the pumpkins.

Check out a selection of photos from the walk below!
