fall pumpkin float festival at frog pond photoBoston's annual Fall Pumpkin Float will be held at the Boston Common Frog Pond. Hundreds of illuminated jack-o’-lanterns will be floated on the water accompanied by spooky family activities.

Attendees are asked to bring 8-inch or smaller carved pumpkins that will be lit and then floated on the Frog Pond for a dramatic early evening display. (**Remember to CARVE your pumpkin ahead of time!)

Adults and children are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and participate in a wide range of fun activities.

A monster mash of science activities will include:
- Massachusetts Horticultural Society activity
- Giant bubbles with the “Bubble Guy” Jim Dichter
- Themed LEGO creations Legoland Discovery Center
- A LEGO Dracula display
- PLUS lots of Halloween giveaways.

Children are invited to decorate luminary bags which will be displayed and illuminated along the edge of the Frog Pond.

This FREE, family-friendly event will also include lots of spooky activities and giveaways for all ages. The event is presented by Parks and Recreation, in partnership with The Skating Club of Boston.
