Our neighborhood gem, The Seaport, is gearing up for a month of Halloween fun sure to please the whole family. Read on below for the events that can’t be missed!
The Seaport is hosting their first ever Pumpkin Fest! Beginning on October 1, you will find pumpkin installations, seasonal food and beverages, and a range of Halloween themed events and activities suitable for all ages. This fest will also host various community initiatives and culminate with a Halloween block party. Here is a breakdown of some of the amazing events you can partake in:
Pumpkin Installations! The famed Pumpkin arch is back on Pier 17, so get those cameras ready and be sure to tag your photo on instagram!
Then get your creative side going by participating in pumpkin decorating! Kids of all ages are invited to decorate their own artificial pumpkin on October 15th from 12-3 pm at the annual Taste of the Seaport Kid’s Zone or on October 30 and November 5&6 from 11am to 3pm at the Hester Street Fair. These are complementary events!
And all month long be sure to use your Pumpkin Punch Card. This card will allow you to partake in seasonal specials from October 1-November 7th. It’s easy to use–just buy 5 pumpkin items at participating restaurants and you will get the 6th one free! More information is on the website.
Calling all four legged friends! Barktoberfest is back! Dress up your pup and head to Seaport Square on October 23 from 3-6 pm for a Halloween costume contest hosted by Downtown Magazine.
