Halloween Around The Dot

Halloween Events Around the Dot

Hayrides through the cemetery, costume contests and even a candlelit pumpkin float on the Neponset River. Dorchester does not play when it comes to Halloween.

 

The Harvest Festival hosted by Cedar Grove Gardens has become a favorite for families. The event runs from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Sat., Oct. 25, and includes a scarecrow contest and candy-stuffed piñatas that kids love. The festival also features free hayrides through Cedar Grove Cemetery, which will be glowing with fall colors later this month. Bring the kids in their costumes. The popular garden store is located at 911 Adams St.

Families in Savin Hill will be parading through their neighborhood on the morning of Oct. 25. The costume parade starts at Savin Hill Beach at 10:45 a.m. and follows a short route to Savin Hill Park, where games and ice cream will be waiting. >> Read More
