On Sunday, October 16, 2011 over 25 families from the surrounding Boston communities enjoyed a frightfully good time at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common. Lions, dinosaurs, punk rockers and bumble bees swarmed the room in hopes to celebrate a haunted Halloween.
With all the buzz around this past weekend's Halloween Party, this may become an annual event!
Families and their little monsters were greeted by a spooky (but of course,smiling) staff, passed juices, a full american buffet, featuring fall favorites such as cider donuts, pumpkin bread, and desserts including apple and pumpkin pies accompanied by spiced apple cider.
Moms, Dads and Grandparents watched as witches and werewolves bonded over stuffed animals, goodie bags, goos and gaas. While 29 children ran around the hotel’s Grand Ballroom exploring every spookey space of the venue, 47 adults took this time to mingle with other families. “I loved seeing all the babies in their cute costumes,” said proud Mom, Masha Yatskar.

Stumped on what you can do in the city for Halloween? Trick or treat down the street with fellow city slickers!
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.
Grab your little snuggle bugs and enjoy a haunted Halloween with fellow frightful families.
