Adults and children are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and participate in a wide range of fun and spooky family activities.

Join LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Boston to build a LEGO® pumpkin for our pumpkin patch and learn how to build spooky creatures with Lego Master Model Builder, Sean. Enjoy exciting acts from the Boston Circus Guild with performances by an aerial artist and stilt walker between 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
