Happy Halloween in Boston

Costumes were ordered. Our trick o treating route was planned. Rain didn’t dampen our moods as we headed over to Beacon Hill, the most famous Halloween street in America!

The gigantic candy bars and the open door policy that lends an almost block party atmosphere are not the only reasons to trick-or-treat in the this famous neighbourhood. Beacon Hill has been rated the number one spot to show off the children’s Halloween costumes across the nation. Visiting ghosts and ghouls in big rambling homes and festive lawns attracts people from all over the world. We saw firefighters, police officers, princesses, superheroes and astronauts. Halloween 2014 was one of the best nights of my life, watching the kids faces as we walked up and down the narrow streets, meeting new people and staring in awe at the unbelievable decorations.
