2016 Pumpkin FestBring-Your-Own Pumpkin
Bring your carved pumpkin to one of the drop-off areas alongside the pond. We will illuminate them and float them for you. Watch as the pond fills up with glowing pumpkins.

Your carved and decorated jack-o’-lanterns must be 8” in diameter, or smaller, and already hollowed out or they will not float. After the event they will be composted by Boston Natural Areas Network.


Decorate Halloween luminaries to set along the perimeter of Frog Pond.
