Toronto Pumpkin Fest

If you’re looking for something exciting to do for the Thanksgiving weekend, plan a trip with your family down to a massive pumpkin patch at Downey’s Farm in Caledon, Ontario, just a 30-minute drive from Toronto.

Since Toronto Pumpkinfest is an outdoor event, there are several things you will want to prepare for beforehand.

The most important item to think about is footwear.

Fall weather can be unpredictable so be sure to check the weather the day of to prepare accordingly. Most outdoor events tend to be pretty muddy so wearing waterproof hiking shoes or boots is a safe choice. Be sure to check your shoes for any cracks or wear before the start of the season.

If you are looking for new footwear, brands such as Clarks, Portofino, Ara, Mephisto and Naot have a great selection of stylish and supportive footwear.

Stay warm with proper fitting thermal socks or Merino wool socks which have moisture wicking properties to keep your feet dry. If you have tired or heavy legs that are prone to getting cold, consider ordering a pair of Sigvaris Merino Wool compression stockings.

Compression stockings are graduated, which means they are tighter at the ankles and looser at the calves, which helps promote continuous circulation. If you are living with Raynauds or are prone to chilblains, Pyro Socks for Cold Feet by Infracare allow your feet to stay warm with their bio-material.

After spending all day outside, you can relax your feet at home, soak them with Gehwol foot bath and moisturize it with Gehwol Warming Balm.
