What to do: Sunday, October 30

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) – Let’s see what to do this last Sunday in October.

Shelburne will host their Halloween celebration and parade this afternoon. There is a costume contest in downtown Shelburne from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., followed by the parade, which begins on Falls Road at 2:00 p.m. After the parade, until 4:30 p.m., you can go trick-or-treating, play carnival games at the Town Gym, do spooky crafts at the library, or check out the free food at the fire station. These activities are free and open to the public.

Burlington’s annual Halloween Bike Ride kicks off downtown this afternoon. Join hundreds of riders for a costumed Halloween party. The police-escorted bicycle parade begins at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon in City Hall Park. Costumes are encouraged.

Head to the White Rocks Barn in Wallingford to decorate pumpkins and watch horror movies! From 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. this afternoon, you can enjoy family fun, including pumpkin decorating and two screenings of short films. Costumes are encouraged and the event is free for all. Pumpkins and decorating materials will be provided.

Head to Once Upon a Time Toys in Stowe for Halloween Toy Haunting! The store will turn a spooky new leaf, with ghosts, ghouls and witches creeping in to greet (or haunt) guests. Organizers say there will be treats and maybe some tricks. Prizes will be awarded for the scariest, funniest and most creative costumes.

Or, if you’re not feeling the Halloween spirit, you can head to Queechee to observe the planet. From 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. tonight, you can see the night sky with local astronomy experts. Organizers say you can see Saturn and Jupiter, while learning about the telescopes, which can be borrowed from the Queechee Library. All ages are welcome and there will be another such event next Tuesday at the same time.

Finally, you can head to Bradford and take part in a 12-hour tabletop board game event. Space on Main in Bradford invites you to come and play a game or two or stay all day at their full day of board games. It is open to everyone and costs $5 to participate.
