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.

Awesome inflatable at this house!
My favourite street in Boston!
My favourite street again, just gorgeous.
Every single house looked like this, so much effort!
The sign in the back said “I’m not giving up this car spot for anything!”
More inflatables in the park.
As the sun went down, more teenages and yound adults ventured out.
Another one of my favourites.
This British expat had converted his Bugaboo pram into the Titanic and his son was dressed as the Captain. A++ for effort.
The cutest jack’o’lantern string lights.
These ghosts made noises and moved in the wind.
These pumpkins were all hand carved. So creative!
Ghosts and tombs.
Super heroes and hippies.

My man soaking up the spooks!
The kids were a little shy to begin with but after a few houses, they were off!

The colours were sublime. Orange and brown and yellow everywhere.
My little sith lord, Darth Maul!
