Halloween Fun In Boston: Jack-O’-Lantern Float Planned For Frog Pond

BOSTON (CBS) – The city of Boston is planning to light up the Frog Pond with jack-o’-lanterns for a spooky Halloween celebration this October.

Mayor Marty Walsh has announced that the Fall Pumpkin Float will be back this year at the Boston Common Frog Pond on Sunday, Oct. 23. Walsh says hundreds of carved, illuminated pumpkins will float on the water.

The city asks that the jack-o’-lanterns be 8 inches or smaller. Local sports teams and organizations will also be showing off their most creative pumpkin carvings.

Walsh says this will be an event for the whole family that will include children’s crafts, science activities and a “haunted zombie maze.”

After the jack-o’-lantern float, the pumpkins will be given to The Trustees of Reservations to be composted.
