BRWA to host Halloween Luminary Walk

UXBRIDGE, Mass. – The Blackstone River Watershed Association, in partnership with Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, will hold a Halloween Luminary Walk on Friday, Oct. 25, and Sunday, Oct. 27, from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m.

Take a lantern stroll along the Blackstone Canal towpath at River Bend Farm Visitor Center, 287 Oak St. This is a not-so-spooky walk at the water’s edge. Participants will listen for wildlife, watch out for the tricky “will-o’-the-wisps” and enjoy the scents and sounds of autumn.

Children will decorate paper bags to make their own lanterns then place a LED in each one and line the towpath with them. The walk will start before sunset and continue through twilight; as darkness falls participants will return on the path which will be illuminated with the children’s lanterns. This is a one-hour, family-friendly, easy walk and is stroller friendly. All ages welcome and children are encouraged to wear costumes. Enjoy apple cider and a treat at the River Bend Farm Visitor Center after the walk.

This event is free but registration is requested for planning purposes. For the Oct. 25 walk, register at http://thebrwa.org/LuminaryWalk1025 . Register for the Oct. 27 walk at http://thebrwa.org/LuminaryWalk1027 .
