Best Halloween Events Near Boston for Kids in 2020

Halloween is fast approaching, and what better place to celebrate the spooky season than our very own historic (and probably haunted!) Boston area? Museums and businesses are working hard to organize pumpkin displays, story times, moonlit walks, "haunted" tours, and more that allow kids to keep socially distant while also having fun. Here are our picks for Halloween events and activities in Massachusetts and neighboring states.

Our Halloween Guide has more ideas for making the most of the holiday this year, including the best places in Boston to find a perfect pumpkin and some seriously scary haunted houses and attractions for big kids. For more seasonal fun, like corn mazes and apple picking, check out our Boston Fall Fun Guide.
