The Halloween Festival, scheduled for Saturday, October 26 has been cancelled. Due to the ongoing EEE threat, outdoor evening events on Town property are prohibited for the safety of the public.


The Mendon Historical Society is pleased to announce the first Mendon Halloween Festival at Memorial Ball Field on Saturday, October 26 from 5 to 9 p.m.

Events for this night of fun and fright will include two spooky trails. One for fearless teens and adults and a second trail of frolic and mischief for our younger audience.
There will be games and activities taking place around the park including Corn Hole, Booth Games, and for those seeking a bit more excitement a Mini Pumpkin Launch.
A movie will be featured in the pavilion along with spooky myths and storytelling from the Lake Nipmuc Gypsies. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
There will be two contests at the Halloween Festival – one for Pumpkin Carving, and another for Creative Costumes.  Illumination of the carved pumpkins will start at dusk followed by a Costume Parade and award ceremony.
Ribbons will be presented for costumes and superior carving skills.
Details for the contests will be available on this page and at our facebook page
The rain date is Sunday, October 27 from 4 to 8 p.m.
This fundraiser supports the Mendon Historical Society. The Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of Mendon have generously stepped up to help the society with this event and will be raising funds for their organizations as well.
Special thanks go out to Mendon Police and Fire Departments, Mendon Festival
Committee, Mendon Parks Department, Brothers of the Brush and many hauntingly talented volunteers who will make this evening one to remember.
