Idyllwild’s annual Great Pumpkin Parade begins at the top of North Circle Drive at 4:15 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31. The parade ends downtown where the Great Pumpkin Carnival kicks off from 5 to 8 p.m.

The carnival includes game booths, bounce houses and costume contests — fun for the entire family. The carnival benefits the Idyllwild School Booster Club for outdoor education trips.
