LETTER: Great pumpkin walk help from community

LETTER: Great pumpkin walk help from community

The Friends of Foster Park would like to thank everyone who helped make our annual pumpkin walk a huge success.

This event wouldn’t be possible without support from our sponsors like Peter Zimmerman who donated all the goodie bags, to Eat Fresh, Quality Foods, Tim Hortons, the Parksville Fire Department, City of Parksville, Parksville Newcomers and Alumni, the Parksville Lions and all our volunteers.

A special thanks must go out to the students and teachers at Ballenas and Springwood schools for carving more than 400 pumpkins. Without their amazing creations there wouldn’t be a pumpkin walk.

Thanks also go out to everyone who came and supported the walk. We had more than 800 people walk the trails! Without your participation and donations these events wouldn’t happen. Find us on Facebook and Twitter to see some pictures of the event.

We look forward to seeing everyone again in the spring for our annual Easter Egg Hunt.
