Fall is here and that means beautiful colours, pumpkin-spice everything, and perhaps best of all, autumn-themed festivals.

Get ready to fully embrace the greatest season of the year with the annual Pumpkinfest.

The festival totally dedicated to orange squash and gourds is set to return to Downsview Park for three days of Thanksgiving weekend fun and activities.
