Halloween Fun in Weston

Halloween weekend fun activities in Weston, safety tips, and what to do with leftover candy.

Have you heard about Boo! at Bosceglie? This will be Moms in Weston's third annual Halloween celebration when kids (and adults) get to enjoy wearing their costumes in daylight. It will be held on Sunday, October 30th and is open to all families who are interested in joining our potluck playdate parade! The fun begins at 2:30 pm and ends at 4 pm (parade begins at 3:15). Each family brings a little treat to share and a goodie to give our trick-or-treaters as they parade around the park to stationed parents throughout the play area. It's free and a lot of fun. More importantly, we meet and greet our neighbors (who may actually live down the street from us)! The best part? Dads come out, too! To avoid bringing duplicate items, feel free to RSVP on the Facebook page or just show up with a little something to share (peanut- and nut-free please). 

Other events in Weston, CT Halloween Weekend:

On Saturday, October 29th, the Weston Girl Scouts and the Weston Historical Society will be hosting Halloween-inspired fun! Kids of all ages will enjoy the crafts, games and treats -- don't forget to wear a costume! The Scare Fair will take place on the Historical Society grounds on Weston Road from 12pm - 4pm. Rain date: Sunday, October 30 (same time).

Ragamuffin Parade: On Halloween Day, the Weston Women's League hosts their annual Ragamuffin Fair and Parade at Hurlbutt Elementary’s South House Field from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The celebration features games, a costume contest, and a “photo op” — where a memorable Polaroid will capture your Halloween moment. Volunteers from the League also will be selling glow products. The costume contest categories are “Best age 4 and Under,” “Best age 5 and Older,” “Best Group,” and “Most Original,” with prizes for all categories. The parade starts at 5:45 and ends at the Weston Fire House where a kid-friendly haunted house is open to all who dare to enter. A second haunted house for those looking for a real scare will also be set up by the Weston Volunteer Fire Department. 

Trick-or-Treat, Smell my Feet

Where do Westonites go trick-or-treating? Safe, decorated, and friendly streets that have been popular in the past include Salem Road, Joanne Lane, Briar Oaks Lane, and Silver Ridge Road. Wherever you end up taking your families, please make sure you wear bright or reflective clothing and bring a flashlight. Here are some other .

Leftover Candy?

No worries. Weston's own Lyn Milliman is known as the Halloween Candy Lady, and she collects the candy to send to our troops abroad. Read about where to drop off candy or funding for shipping in this . If your littles like to draw, have them make cards to thank our troops for serving our country. These can go in the shipments, too.

Have a safe and fun Halloween!

In light of the inclement weather, we will be holding our Boo! at the Weston Public Library Community Room from 2:30-3:30. Of course, depending safety and power issues. We hope everyone is ok.

We hope everyone is doing well after the storm. Unfortunately with the power outages and hazardous road conditions, we will be canceling today's Boo! Stay safe and warm! The Town Hall is open until 5 pm today for charging purposes and the Middle School is open for showers. The Weston Public Schools are closed Monday and Tuesday.

The Scare Fair is scheduled for Saturday, 11/5 from 12-4 pm. The Ragamuffin Fair starts at 4:30 pm (yes, it's happening because I volunteered to help) and the parade at 5:30 pm. The Fire Station will have their haunted houses for all to enjoy with treats of their own. Trick-or-treating is on! As far as I know, Salem Road is accepting trick-or-treaters. Anyone know of others? See you tomorrow at some or all of the events! Go, Weston!
