Fall Pumpkin Float

Bring the entire family to the Annual Fall Pumpkin Float at the Boston Common Frog Pond.

The event takes place on Friday, October 20, from 5 - 8 p.m. Hundreds of illuminated jack-o’-lanterns will float on the water. They'll also be FREE festive family activities.

Attendees are asked to bring 8-inch or smaller carved pumpkins. They will be lit and then floated on the Frog Pond for a picturesque early evening display. In addition, attendees are invited to judge creatively carved and decorated jack-o’-lanterns from various local organizations.

Children will be able to decorate luminary bags. They will be displayed and illuminated along the edge of the Frog Pond. This FREE family-friendly event will also include a magician, music, mazes, and child-focused activities. Halloween costumes are encouraged!

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