Cambridge, MA– The Halloween season offers a variety of fun events for children, youth and families across the City of Cambridge. Various city departments will be sponsoring parties and other events around Cambridge from Oct. 25 -31, 2019.
Most of the events are hosted Cambridge Community Schools, Cambridge Library branches, and Cambridge fire houses. Please call or visit the website of the city agency closest to your neighbor for the latest information. Link to the 2019 Halloween Listing online.
Open Houses will be held at most Cambridge Fire Houses* on Thursday, Oct. 31, from 2-4 p.m. All are welcome to drop in and visit with the firefighters and check out the apparatus and equipment. Kids are invited to wear their costumes. Candy donated by Cambridge Brands will be distributed to the trick or treating children.
*Note that there will be NO open house at the temporary station 8 Fire House on Smith Place while the permanent station in Taylor Square is closed for reconstruction.
Please keep in mind that if firefighters are called out to an emergency response, there may be no one in the fire house at that time.
For general Trick or Treating Safety, all kids are reminded to wear reflective colors, carry a flashlight when it gets dark, and use extra caution crossing streets. Young children should be accompanied by an adult or responsible older kid. Open flames should never be used as Halloween decorations or costumes. Any treats given to kids should be checked out by an adult.
