- Trick or Treating: I keep getting this question. The Town doesn’t have official Trick or Treating hours (despite what you may have read elsewhere.) Trick or Treating traditionally happens on the day of in Southborough. And most bell ringers begin after dark, around dinner time.
- “Ghostbusters” Halloween display (after dark – about 10:00 pm) @ 139 Parkerville Road: Trick or treaters are invited to check out the fantastic Ghostbusters themed Halloween display. Spooky lighting and fun music add to the effect. All ages are welcome and there’s nothing here that should terrify the little ones. Click here for details and a photo preview.
