Photos: Pumpkin Lane shows off Yellowknife’s best pumpkins

Halloween lasts a little longer in Yellowknife, where pumpkins will line a walkway along the Somba K’e Civic Plaza until Friday night.

The annual Pumpkin Lane event showcases dozens of residents’ retired pumpkins each year.

People are invited to add their pumpkins to the lane and help light the pumpkins each evening at 5:30pm.


Here are a few of our favourite pumpkins from this year.
