BOSTON (CBS) – On this week’s To Do List we have some late Friday fun, a Halloween walk, and comedy at home.


Throughout the month the New England Aquarium will be open late on Fridays and hosting aquarium “after dark” theme nights, like pajama night and haunted aquarium.

The new extended hours allow guests to kick off the weekend by staying at the aquarium until 8 p.m.

Something fun night visitors will experience is the lighting changing in the giant ocean tank to mimic natural lighting transitions. 

When: Friday’s through Nov. 1
Where: New England Aquarium, 1 Central Wharf, Boston, MA 02110
Cost: Adult: $32, Child (3-11): $23, Senior (60+): $30, Children (<3): Free, Aquarium members: free


If you want to get in the Halloween spirit, and if you’re brave enough, take part in a “Ghost and Legends Walk” in Peabody.

You’ll hear about historical events and visit sites that are thought to be haunted!

Each tour lasts about one hour and is appropriate for all ages.

When: Oct. 10 (sold out) and Oct. 24 (8-9pm & 9:30-10:30pm)
Where: O’Shea Mansion, 2 Washington St., Peabody, MA
