Walk Street Trick or Treating
: Last but not least, the family-friendly South End walk streets are arguably the hottest spot for Halloween trick or treating. After a year on hiatus
, look for a return to spooky scenes, over-the-top decorations, lots of candy, and (most likely) crowds of trick-or-treaters.
