Check back to see more Halloween events. More spooky events will surface as they arise! Eeeeeek!
GRAVESTONE GIRLS: WELCOME TO DUXBURY GRAVEYARDS
Our adult oriented presentation is about New England cemetery art, history and symbolism in a 90 minute Powerpoint format. The ‘virtual tour’, called 'Welcome to The Graveyard”, takes us from colonial burial grounds, through the rural cemetery movement of the 19th century and into 21st century locations. It examines why we have cemeteries and gravestones, why they look like they do and how styles and art have evolved over almost 400 years. Prior to a committed program date, The Girls will hit the road and go through Duxbury town’s cemeteries, taking pictures for use in building the presentation and using as much local content as possible for a customized experience. This program has been tailored for many different towns and groups, for presentations at historical societies, genealogy groups, libraries and others for more than fifteen years. Registration is required 2 weeks prior to the program.

Join members of the Spooky Crew from Spooky Southcoast as they present AN EERIE NIGHT AT EDAVILLE 2018 at Edaville Family Theme Park on Saturday, October 20, 2018.
Once the lights go out and all the families have left the park for the day, we get the entire park to ourselves for a one-of-a-kind investigation.
Edaville sits on 250 acres of the former cranberry plantation of founder Ellis D. Atwood, on land that was once inhabited by the Wampanoags and saw some of the battles of King Philip’s War. Atwood started building what would later become known as Edaville Railroad in the late 1940s, and it would become a beloved attraction. People come from all over to ride the two-foot narrow-gauge railroad, and enjoy the many rides on the midway. There is also a museum dedicated to the history of the cranberry industry.
But after a dormant period just prior to the new millennium, current owner Jon Delli Priscoli has put his heart and soul into expanding on Ellis Atwood’s original vision, and has been adding new attractions to Edaville since 2002.
In past investigations of Edaville, we’ve encountered shadow figures in the basement of the museum building…phantom screams in the “suicide house,” where three people have killed themselves over the years…and lots of other mysterious phenomena along the midway, on the train and in DinoLand.
This will be the first time we’ve investigated Edaville in October, however. Who knows what spooky happenings could occur so close to Halloween?
Tickets for this event are just $99 each, and are limited. That price includes dinner, snacks and drinks all night, lectures, and hours of guided investigation.
Your evening will begin at 7 p.m. EST with a train ride around the park. That will be followed by a pizza dinner, an overview of paranormal investigation and then hours of guided investigation, all the way until 1:30 a.m.

It’s not the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. It’s thousands of them. Row after row of carved, illuminated pumpkins make the Jack O’Lantern Spectacular a great way to get in the spirit of Halloween, starting at the very beginning of October.
The Roger Williams Zoo in Providence has been hosting this festive event since 1988, and its popularity continues to grow. The creativity and intricacy of the carving is a treat to behold. Recent years have featured creative takes on the movies Titanic and Lord of the Rings. This year's theme is titled "American Treasures," which will feature a celebration of our nation's history and culture through postage stamps.
The Pumpkin Trail is open every evening from October 4 through November 4, rain or shine, with tickets available from 6:00pm to 11:00pm (the trail closes at 10:30pm.) On Saturdays, the trail stays open one hour later. Prices range from $15 for adults, $12 for children (ages 2-12) Monday through Thursday and $18 for adults, $15 for children Friday through Sunday.
