On Oct. 30, there’s fun for the young and the young-at heart at downtown Somerville’s Halloween Spooktacular featuring trick-or-treating at local stores and restaurants and a Halloween Boo-gie on Division Street from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. Presented by the Downtown Somerville Alliance and community partner Empower Family Success Center, the family-friendly event will feature master pumpkin carving demonstrations, a free photo booth (thanks to Zen Image Studio and Gems & Stems), a Halloween Passport for treats, a DJ dance party, along with lots of surprises!

“Division Street has helped make downtown Somerville a natural gathering place year-round, but especially on Halloween and other holidays,” said the DSA’s Tom Genova. “When you combine great events with world class shopping and dining, a dynamic streetscape and amenities, plus accessibility and convenience you’ve helped reinforce why Somerville is a regional destination that’s a great place to live, to work, to visit and to invest.”
