Frog Pond Pumpkin Float

Bring the entire family to the 5th Annual Pumpkin Float at Frog Pond featuring floating pumpkins, luminaries and fun family activities. Refreshments, music and child-focused activities will make this a frightfully-fun way to celebrate Halloween!

This is a FREE event presented by Boston Parks and Recreation in partnership with The Skating Club of Boston

Bring-Your-Own Pumpkin
Bring your carved 8-inch pumpkin to one of the drop-off areas alongside the pond. We will illuminate them and float them for you. Watch as the pond fills up with glowing pumpkins.

Your carved and decorated jack-o’-lanterns must be 8” in diameter, or smaller, and already hollowed out or they will not float. After the event they will be composted by The Trustees of Reservations.

Pumpkin Carving Display
Local businesses, teams, organizations and colleges are invited to carve  and submit a pumpkin to display at the annual Fall Pumpkin Float. Stay tuned for more info.

Tricks, treats, experiments, crafts, drinks, and tons of frightful fun!
