Halloween is almost here and we have put together Part 3 of our 2009 Worcester Halloween Planning Guide. In Part 3 we will provide some information on Halloween events and activities in the Worcester and Central Mass area.
As the Halloween season comes to a close there are usually many activities going on for kids. Check out your schools and youth centers for specifics. I am honestly surprised at how hard this type of information is to find though.
General family activities that I was able to find include:
Pipe Screams – Wacky Halloween Organ Concert at All Saints Church this Friday night
Haunted Higgins at the Higgins Armory Museum
To put on the calendar for next year is the Great Pumpkin Fest which took place this past Saturday at the Ecotarium. Definitely a kids event that should not be missed.
The Dance and Party scene is abundant in Worcester. Here are some of the events I found.
Halloween SALSA Dance and Food Drive on Halloween night at the Worcester Hibernian Cultural Centre
Halloween Party hosted by Moonshine Jillian’s – Worcester
The Deadites Halloween Extravaganza Lucky Dog Music Hall
Dogfish Head Halloween Bash The Dive Bar
Play for Blood Halloween Party Tammany Hall
“Dirtnap Entertainment Halloween Spooktacular 2009” London Billiards / Club Oasis
If you can’t find something you like you can always check your favorite Worcester area restaurants, bars and nightclubs to see if they have anything special going on Friday or Saturday night.
If you want to explore options outside of Worcester, Salem is always a good choice for Halloween. I believe the Globe called it the North Pole of Halloween. Enjoy and stay safe!
