Fall Harvest Fun, “way better than trick-or-treating”

4, Nov, 2010 Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy

Overheard in the Greenway Halloween Maze:

This is way better than trick-or-treating” – young ninjas being chased by a witch

I can take my pumpkin home?!” –  a princess and a ladybug painting pumpkins

What a great way to bring a bit of farm to the city.”  – parents watching their costumed childrem run through the maze

Last week, the Greenway welcomed almost 3,000 ninjas, princesses, masked super heroes, and other little ghouls through the Greenway Halloween Maze. Additionally over 200 pumpkins were painted and 750 free carousel tickets were given away as part of the free Fall Harvest Fun at Boston Public Market on Thursday, October 28.
