Rise of the Jack O'Lanterns Boston, Ghostly Gatherings, Spooky Zoo, Halloween Events, Trick or Treating and More: New England Fall Events Top Picks for Oct 26-Nov 1st

One of the most popular family holidays of the year is upon us--Halloween!
Hard to believe it's the end of October already and we admit  we're sad to see our favorite seasons drawing to a close but we plan to make the most of it while we can.

We adore Halloween as much as you and there is no better place that captures the spirit of this holiday than our beautiful New England. Our region hosts dozens of Halloween events for kids and adults alike so check our events calendar to see what's happening near you.
This week you'll see an abundance of Halloween fun and your biggest challenge just may be deciding between so many great ways to celebrate!

Rise of the Jack O'Lanterns - FOUR Nights Only (Thursday-Sunday)
This Thursday marks the debut of Boston's huge new Jack O'Lantern event called Rise of the Jack O'Lanterns. This highly-anticipated event features over 5,000 carved jack o'lanterns on display and four carving stations to observe the skills of their master pumpkin carvers. You'll find combination displays, giant pumpkins, 3D sculpted pumpkins, and a mini carving factory. Rise of the Jack O'Lanterns will only be open for FOUR nights leading to Halloween (this Thurs Oct 27th - Sunday 30th) so we recommend buying tickets ASAP.
Bonus: this event is held indoors which means it's also open during  the DAY--a great option for families with younger children.
Find links to sign up for discount ticket codes on our Rise event page.

Never too late to pick pumpkins at a local patch!
As you know by now, New England Fall Events makes it so easy to find a local pumpkin patch for carving your jack-o-lanterns in time for Halloween! Add the various community pumpkin carving contests and pumpkin displays to the mix of your pumpkin-buying needs and you will certainly need to stock up on more than a few!

We have state-by-state guides and maps to all your local farms featuring pumpkin patches and PYO pumpkins.
