BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The City of Burlington is getting festive for the spooky season!

This year’s Halloween Howl takes place at North Beach, and the hayrides are a highlight.

City officials say the tractor rides are a safe way to celebrate the holiday, and families in the community say they’ve looked forward to them during the pandemic.

The workers entertained hundreds of residents all afternoon in full costume.

While kids waited for the wagon, they could get their faces painted and fortunes read.

“We’ve been doing Halloween events for a long long time, and they’ve been at Oakledge, they’ve been at the Ethan Allen Tower, and every year we try to do something fun for Burlington families, and we’re just really happy we’ve been able to make it work during the past two years with wagon rides during COVID,” said Recreation Superintendent Gary Rogers.

Burlington Parks, Recreation, and Waterfront’s next Halloween jamboree will be on Oct. 31 itself.

Officials invite you to dress up and join neighbors for a bike ride.
