The Fall Pumpkin Float is coming to the Boston Common Frog Pond on Sunday, October 23, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Hundreds of illuminated jack-o’-lanterns will float on the water and festive family activities will be offered.
Attendees are asked to bring 8-inch or smaller carved pumpkins that will be lit and then floated on the Frog Pond for a picturesque early evening display. Adults and children are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes! Children will be able to decorate luminary bags which will be displayed and illuminated along the edge of the Frog Pond.
This event is presented by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with the Skating Club of Boston with additional support provided by Mass Farmers Markets, Boston Cares, Magic 106.7, and media partner the Boston Herald.
