If residents can time it correctly, they can take in two exciting Halloween events in the North End back to back, tonight, Tuesday, October 31.
The Recovery Outreach Community (ROC) Teen Saturday program will host its 12th annual Haunted Halloween Carnival, October 31 from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Nazzaro Community Center, Polcari Playground.
The Spooky event includes rides, a bounce house, super slides, food, drinks, pumpkins and more.
Once this Halloween Carnival is over, residents can walk a short distance to the Paul Revere Mall (Prado) to take part in the North End Music and Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) Halloween celebration with family and friends.
The free event is sponsored by Representative Aaron Michlewitz. The ghostly Halloween event will feature pizza, music, snacks, games and activities provided by NEMPAC.
Event date is Tuesday, October 31 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Both organizations welcome families and other residents to attend the hollowing community programs and to wear costumes.
