Things to do with families in Boston this weekend

Pumpkin season is in full swing, and this weekend we've got pumpkin everything: pumpkin nights, pumpkin painting, and even pumpkin people. For more Halloween fun, brave this historic (and haunted!) castle and grab a costume for this monster fest. There's also a festival perfect for book lovers, a chance to exercise engineering skills (for free), and a way for teens to get some community service hours (followed by a harvest treat!).
