Halloween Parade and Pumpkin Flotilla

Join us for Central Park Conservancy’s annual Halloween Parade and Pumpkin Flotilla on Sunday, October 26. Enjoy spooky music, nocturnal animal mask arts and crafts, live pumpkin carving demonstrations, and of course our signature pumpkin flotilla, which sets sail across the Harlem Meer at twilight!

Due to the limited number of floats and space, pre-carved pumpkins will only be accepted at the two designated drop off locations between 3:30 pm and 5:15 pm or until the flotilla reaches capacity.

Members: pre-register before October, 24 to secure your pumpkin's spot on the flotilla!

Pumpkin Flotilla Guidelines
Pumpkins must be pre-carved with top.

Weight: approximately 8 pounds after carved; mini pumpkins will not be accepted

Size:  No bigger than the size of a soccer ball

Decoration: No artificial materials, such as paint, glitter, marker, food dye, paper, plastic 
This is to protect the ecological health of the Harlem Meer should your pumpkin decide to go for a swim!
