Boston Halloween Overview

Halloween_s165x110

Many scholars believe Halloween started as a Christian feast, heavily influenced by European harvest festivals, while others attest All Hallows’ Eve began as a pagan ritual in order to celebrate the dead. Either way, a combination of cultural and literary symbols – like pumpkins, ghosts, monsters, and scarecrows, to name a few – have become part of the Halloween legend, making it one of the most unique holidays on the global calendar.

Today, millions of people – both young and old – happily don costumes of all kinds and head out to spooky parties across their respective cities. In 2015, there’s no better metropolis to do the Monster Mash on Halloween than Boston.

Halloween in Boston 2015 features a plethora of freaky, fun Halloween events like the Chandler Street Halloween Party, just a half hour outside Salem, the legendary home to American witches. There, ghastly guests enjoy live music, face painting, food from local businesses, magic shows, and have the opportunity to enter a costume contest.

Meanwhile, ghouls and gals not interested in family-friendly fun head to one of the countless alcohol-infused Boston Halloween parties. The Crawl in Boston Halloween Bar Crawl affords dressed up denizens a chance to participate in Beatown’s oldest Halloween pub crawl, which boasts 15 participating bars around Faneuil Hall and the Financial District.

This Halloween, whether you chose to dress up as a sexy nurse or Batman, Boston is a great place to trick-or-treat and find something good to eat – and plenty more to drink.
