If you are looking for a family-friendly Halloween event, you might want to take a closer look at Pru Boo. The biggest Halloween party in the city, Pru Boo is open to children up to 12-years-old. Over 50 stores and restaurants at the Shops at Prudential Center participate in this annual event, with all proceeds going to a nonprofit partner that benefits children.
Participants are encouraged to wear their costumes as they come to The Shops at Prudential Center to enjoy a save and fun Halloween event. In addition to trick-or-treating, the event offers face painting, pumpkin decorating, magic shows, a concert and more. Non-food trick-or-treat items will also be included in this year’s event to accommodate those with food allergies or who simply would like an alternative to candy. For a small donation, participants will receive a trick-or-treat bag filled with candy from participating stores throughout the mall.
These are just a few examples of the great Halloween activities taking place in and around Boston. Keep checking back for more information about fun things to do in Boston this Halloween season!
