Medford gets into the Halloween spirit this weekend and throughout next week with a variety of spooky treats that will be fun for locals and visitors alike.
Tonight, join Lower Forge Brewery for a scary fun time with horror-themed trivia at their South Main Street tasting room. The brewers have obtained a pair of tickets to Main Street Medford’s Haunted Ghost Walk next Friday & Saturday that will be awarded to the winning team (along with the usual prizes for their weekly Thursday trivia night)!
This weekend marks the last weekend of Pick & Paint a Pumpkin for families visiting on Saturday or Sunday afternoon with a candy bonus for anyone attending in costume. Later each night, visitors to the Stokelan Estate can enjoy themed wine and candy pairings as part of their Halloween celebration. The winery has also shared that they’ll have live music throughout the weekend to accompany their delicious vintages.
The annual Halloween Parade presented by the Medford-Vincentown Rotary Club starts this Saturday (the 28th) at 7:00 pm on Firehouse Lane on North Main Street and proceeds south through Medford’s Historic Downtown Village onto South Main Street before ending at the Haines Middle School Campus. The parade takes place annually on the last Saturday of October before Halloween and attracts tens of thousands of visitors to Medford including over forty floats, multiple marching bands, and hundreds of costumed marchers.
The Haunted Medford Main Street Ghost Walk is a walking ghost tour of the Historic Downtown Village guided by experienced psychic mediums from The Center, Life in Balance on Friday, November 3rd, and Saturday, November 4th. These mediums will guide participants through two different haunted locations using paranormal detection instruments. No tricks or theater, just Medford’s authentic history waiting to be seen and heard! Ticket holders meet a new medium in each location! This allows a more immersive experience for our guests, and it also allows our mediums to be in one place and get to know the spirits in their location better! This annual event takes place each year on the Friday and Saturday following Halloween and typically sells out early, with tickets available through the Main Street Merchants of Historic Medford Village.
Finally, you can never go wrong getting into the Halloween spirit with a pumpkin-picking hay ride at Johnson’s Corner Farm. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, you’ll be able to take a wagon out into the fields and find the perfect pumpkin to display proudly for the tricks-or-treats in your neighborhood.
We’d love to hear your spooky ideas!
