Where to Trick or Treat in Central Mass

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

 

Hurricane Sandy may have done a number on the east coast, but that won't stop trick or treaters throughout Central Massachusetts from hunting for candy.

Well, it may delay them in some locations.

But still, Halloween is here, and GoLocalWorcester is bringing you the top spots to grab the best treats, along with an update on which towns have pushed their trick or treating back.

Worcester's West Side

One of the most charming neighborhoods in Worcester, complete with older homes and tree lined streets, the West Side can become delightfully spooky on Halloween. The houses may be slightly spaced apart, but the views of the neighborhood will make the increased "walking to candy" ratio well worth it.

Main Street in Fitchburg

While Fitchburg's trick or treating festivities have been pushed back to Saturday at 5:30 pm, Main Street was already preparing to host a series of creepily fun events on Saturday. The fun will include early trick or treating in the daylight for youngsters, beginning at 12:30 pm, along with face painting, games and costume contests. Then, the older kids can stick around for night time fun, or take advantage of the Haunted Cemetery at Monument Park, hosted by the YMCA.

Charlton's Carroll Hill Estates

One of the most beautiful neighborhoods in all of Central Mass, Charlton's Carroll Hill Estates is known for its quaint charm and awesome trick or treating. Neighboring towns are said to have slightly larger houses, but in terms of bang for your buck, it's hard to beat Carroll Hill.

The Greendale and Auburn Malls

Both the Greendale Mall and Auburn Mall are getting set to host their annual Spooktacular Mall-Wide trick or treats. There is no charge for the event, which will run from 3-5 pm in both malls, and kids will get the chance to trick or treat at participating stores throughout the mall. Please note that attendees are not allowed to wear face masks or have fully painted faces.

Delayed Trick or Treating

Here are the new days and times for trick or treating in Central Mass towns that have pushed their fun back a bit.

Ashby: Now Saturday from 6-8 pm

Fitchburg: Now Saturday from 5:30-7:30 pm

Leominster: Now Saturday from 5-7 pm

Lunenberg: Now Friday from 5-8 pm

Rutland: Now Friday from 5-8 pm

Spencer: Now Friday from 5:30-6:30 pm
