Beyond the Forsythia Festival the CRA also runs several other community focused events throughout the year.
The Pumpkin Walk happens every year on November 1. Residents bring their Halloween Pumpkins to Riverdale Park, for an evening of neighbourhood fun. We collect food bank donations and the city then recycles all our pumpkins for us!
The Holiday Cards competition is run in conjunction with local schools. Students create holiday themed art, which is judged by local Cabbagetown artists. The winning entries get special certificates and a pizza lunch for their class.
The Holiday lights contest encourages everyone in the neighbourhood to decorate their front yards with lights over the Christmas period. Residents can enter their house, or a neighbours house and everyone gets a chance to vote on their favourite.
A neighbourhood get together to clean-up our local parks. The Spring cleanup coincides with Earth Day and the Fall clean-up coincides with World Clean-up Day.
