Where is Halloween New England headed this weekend?

No matter what Mother Nature throws our way, we'll know we'll be participating in The Day of the Dead Scavenger Hunt and Party in the Pines in Taunton, MA all day Sunday--join us!

Last weekend we returned to Fright Fest at Six Flags New England for their opening weekend. The weather was crisp and the spirits were high across the whole park. Let there be no doubt, everyone was in the mood for Halloween!
