Windsor, Nova Scotia is a beautiful small town about 50km south west of Halifax. Each October very special events happen here – giant pumpkin parade. The Dill family farm is famous for growing world largest pumpkins. They are so big that people started carving them and making into pumpkin boats. The Dill farm claims to be a birthplace of hockey first played early in 19-th century at the Long Pond located at the far end of the pumpkin fields. Pumpkin parade is preceded by the weighing of the pumpkins where visitors can see world largest pumpkins and buy some for Halloween decorations or even do a U-pick fresh from the field.
Windsor pumpkin parade happens the weekend after Canadian Thanksgiving. The parade usually starts around noon and is followed by pumpkin regatta around 2pm. Early October is one of the best times to travel in Nova Scotia. The weather is usually dry and not to hot or humid. The leaves are turning into fall colors and the scenery is breathtaking. Parade follows Gerrish street and then Water street, for up to date information visit Windsor-West Hants pumpkin festival site.
