Halloween is just days away and we can’t wait to celebrate. When it’s over, we’ll be sad to see it go – but saying goodbye can be a celebration, too! Several New Jersey towns offer Halloween send offs but we’re particularly fond of this family-friendly event in Mountainside.

Tickets are $12 per family of 6 for Union County residents and $16 for out-of-county families. Contact the Parks & Recreation Reservation Desk for more information at 908-527-4900 (Elizabeth) or 908-654-9805 (Westfield). If tickets are already sold out for this year, there’s always next – it’s a wonderful annual tradition. This year’s pumpkin sail will take place on Friday, November 1st from 5:15 pm – 9:30 pm. The rain date is Saturday, November 2nd.
