Halloween in Connecticut
New England Holiday Traditions
New England lends itself to being particularly inviting in the Fall, and especially during Halloween.
Recently we took a daytrip and a leisurely stroll along cobblestone sidewalks through a historic town here in Connecticut to view “Scarecrows on Main”. Each year local civic organizations, schools and arts groups get together and hold a contest for different categories of “Scarecrows” that are handmade. Of course, not all are scary – and each year they just seem to get more unique! Many have themes.
It’s a great idea for tourism, and families come and enjoy the day, patronizing the local shoppes, restaurants, bakeries, or even bring a picnic lunch – as well as their cameras!
I took so many photos so I thought I’d let you enjoy them here.
Does your town do anything special for Halloween?
