Boston in the fall is a wonderful time to enjoy the changing of the seasons with your little one. Winter is on its way, holiday happiness fills the air, and an energy takes over families as they prepare for the many festivities.
As the summer months come to a close, the first holiday that quickly approaches is Halloween–one of children’s favorite times to dress up and indulge in all sorts of goodies and trick or treats. Many families new to the city may wonder how best to participate in this holiday while still being mindful of their children’s safety and the sometimes challenging logistics of the urban setting.
In an effort to help families have a haunted, but happy Halloween, Marlborough Street between Berkeley and Fairfield as well as Dartmouth and Clarendon Streets between Commonwealth and Beacon will be closed to moving traffic from 3:30-9:30pm on Monday, October 31, 2011.
The Clarendon Street Playground will be offering pizza, drinks and glow necklaces for sale, as well as a magic show, hay rides around the neighborhood and a safe house list for trick or treating from 4:00-6:00pm.
If you are still in search of a spooky but safe way to celebrate Halloween with your little ghost or goblin, stroll to the Back Bay and have a frightful good time with other families.
If you are interested in being on the safe house list, please contact the Neighborhood Association of the Back Bay office at 617.247.3961 or firstname.lastname@example.org
