Harpoon, one of me and Jim's favs from the Boston area, offers seasonal events (Oktoberfest was 10/1 and featured beer, bratwurst, waltzing musicians in lederhosen, and contests). The Harpoon Brewery is located at 306 Northern Ave, Boston, MA. Don't worry, you didn't miss their only October event! All month, they are having local fun fall events - they are listed on their website. You can attend in and around Boston at local restaurants or at their Brewery at the address above.
Connors Farm in Danvers offers a crazy awesome corn maze that changes every year. It is about $10 per adult to visit during the week, and $14 on the weekends. Children under 2 years old are free. They also have free parking which is a plus. A ticket to Connors Farm includes hayrides, pedal carts, and other fun activities. It's great for the whole family! Visit their page for pics of the annual corn maze.
I also wanted to list a personal favorite event of mine and that's the upcoming 62nd annual Woburn Halloween Parade. It's one of the longest running Halloween parades in Massachusetts. And it's a great one. Perfect for the kids. A lot of people dress up. Here's a little blurb from the host, Lions Club, on the Woburn Halloween Parade.
"62 years ago, the directors and members of our Lions Club decided to create the Woburn Lions Annual Halloween Parade to give back to the City of Woburn. From the early days the parade has grown each year to be the amazing event that we now have today. 80,000 spectators, over 25 bands or marching unit, more than 75 floats, clowns, balloons, food vendors, friends, kids in costune some thing for everyone indeed."
All for now!
