Shelburne Falls Cancels Halloween Events, Discourages Trick-Or-Treating
With parking bans, curfews, and canceled commuter trains, officials are trying to keep people from flocking to Salem, Massachusetts for Halloween.
This is the Witch City’s high season. But not this year. The pandemic prompted officials months ago to cancel all events.
It may not rival Salem, but Shelburne Falls has been a Halloween destination for throngs of trick-or-treaters from the Massachusetts Hilltowns. This year, the tradition is being discouraged.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Andrew Baker, Shelburne Select Board Chair.
