It may be difficult to tell from the temperatures outside where you live, but Halloween is just a short time away, and we are so excited to get the chance to celebrate with you again this October! As the days grow shorter and we start to detect the first signs of autumn coolness in the air, we notice the candy in the stores and we have already started to plan our costumes. If you’re considering a spooktacular vacation at the end of October, here’s a list of things to do in Harwich this Halloween during your stay!
Ghost & Witches of Cape Cod
What better way is there to celebrate the spookiest time of the year than with a talk by local author, Jack Sheedy, covering the topic of the supernatural on Cape Cod? Our favorite place on Earth has a long and rich history dating back to even before the pilgrims first landed on Plymouth Rock, so is there any doubt there may be some lingering spirits? Held October 28th, from 2:00 PM until 3:00 PM at the Brooks Academy Museum on 80 Parallel Street, the topic is even more frightening because it could be real!
Visit the Pumpkin Patch in Nearby Chatham
Halloween wouldn’t be nearly as fun without that big orange gourd that serves so many purposes, and the Pumpkin Patch, held every day in the month of October at First Congregational Church, 650 Main Street in Chatham, is the place to get them. Proceeds from the pumpkins sold benefit the Chatham Children’s Fund, so you’re doing a good deed as you celebrate the holiday!
