New Bedford Creative is hosting The Pumpkin Parade with the Rotch-Jones-Duff House and Garden Museum.

This is the third annual Pumpkin Parade event. Visit the Museum on Thursday, October 15 from 4 to 8 pm to see a display of Jack-O-Lanterns carved with care by community members. These gourds are sure to bring a smile to your face as you stroll through the garden, especially along the "woodland walk."

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the historic mansion will be open at limited capacity. Staff will follow social distancing and other safety precautions set in place due to the novel coronavirus.

In addition to the display of jack-o-lanterns, the kiddos can go inside to complete a scavenger hunt and pick up a treat. No tricks here, we promise. Everyone can wear a costume if they wish. This is a family-friendly Halloween event, after all.

The event is free for all who would like to celebrate the holiday at the museum, but your donation is greatly appreciated. Any amount would go a long way.

The Rotch-Jones-Duff House and Garden Museum is a National Historic Landmark at 396 County Street in New Bedford, MA.
