14th Annual Pumpkin Float at DCR Pope John Paul II Park
Tuesday, October 20
5:30 pm registration, 6:00 pm float

Meet at Pope John Paul II Park in Dorchester at the Hallet Street entrance.

Join this Neponset family tradition! Bring your hollow carved pumpkin and join the floating parade of illuminated jack-o-lanterns down Davenport Creek to the Neponset River. Halloween costumes encouraged!

Pumpkins can be no larger than 8 inches, or they won’t float. Each jack-o-lantern will have a candle inserted on site and lit before being launched, en masse, in the water. Floats and candles will be provided. At the end of the event, pumpkins are collected for compost and used in Boston gardens.

Event check-in at Hallet Street entrance to the park. Presented by MA DCR and co-sponsored by the Trustees.
