Top Event Picks for November 2019


Halloween New England's fans know better than to think Halloween season ends October 31st, right?

There are still a number of very worthwhile events to enjoy during the first two weeks of November - and the best part? Fewer crowds, more personal experience and an extended Halloween season all lined up for you!

It's the final weekend of haunting for a number of local haunted attractions, many of whom are planning special events to draw you in and offer something new. It's your last, best chance pack in extra thrills before your favorite season is over until next fall.

Before we close up the proverbial (blog) shop until next fall, let us express our deepest thanks to everyone who followed Halloween New England, read our blogs, visited our event picks, sent us updates and feedback about their Halloween adventures, and let others know about the resource that our site and community aims to be for Halloween fans everywhere. May you all have a wonderful "off-season" and we look forward to reconnecting in 2020!

In Rhode Island, it's the last full week to see the Jack O'Lantern Spectacular at the Roger Williams Zoo in Providence. The Spectacular is open every night through Sunday, November 3rd,

We found it a great pleasure strolling through the Spectacular ourselves which is one of our very favorite ways to soak up the spirit of Halloween. This continues to be a wonderful event which thematically engages people of all ages and sparks a sense of wonder.  Many sections have a carved pumpkin theme, augmented by music, that could range anywhere from video games, classic horror movies, fairy tales, Harry Potter, celebrities, historical figures, Boston sports icons, and more.
