18th Annual DCR Neponset Pumpkin Float
The 18th annual Neponset Pumpkin Float is just around the corner. Bring a pumpkin to @MassDCR Pope John Paul II Park and enjoy an evening of family-friendly fun!
This is the 18th year of a Dorchester tradition when hundreds of costumed children and their families, as well as enthusiastic individuals will participate in the floating parade of illuminated jack-o-lanterns down Davenport Creek to the Neponset River.
Beginning at 5:30 p.m., participants can bring a 6 – 8 inch hollow pumpkin that has been carved at home to the Hallet Street entrance to the park to be mounted on a special individual float. (Larger pumpkins will be too big). (**CARVE your pumpkin ahead of time!)
Each jack-o-lantern will have a candle inserted and lit before being launched en mass in the water at 6:00 pm.
Floats and candles will be provided. The result will be a beautiful water parade of spooky pumpkins.
The event is free and no registration is required.
Pumpkins will be collected for composting and floats are recycled for next year’s event making this a green tradition.
