Make this year’s Halloween weekend a memorable one by attending a few frightening events. Here are some Halloween activities near Cape Cod recommended by us here at Dick Beard Chevrolet.
“A Visit with the Night Watchman”
Taking place the evening of October 28th at Falmouth Museums of the Green, “A Visit with the Night Watchman” offers families a spooky experience they won’t soon forget. Visitors will interact with strange spirits that haunt the Dr. Francis Wicks House. The event is recommended for children six years of age and older.
Halloween Family Festival
The Halloween Family Festival takes place on October 29th at the Heritage Museums and Gardens. The Halloween dance party will feature temporary tattoos, a hayride, themed drinks and snacks. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet movie characters, create their own mask, and take a trip through a burlap maze. To sweeten the deal, the Magnolia Café will sell food and drinks.
Harvest of Horrors
The Harvest of Horrors takes visitors on a haunted hayride across 20 acres of land. What follows is a walk through a forest full of fright. The event opens on October 8th and closes on October 29th. The event is recommended for children 12 years of age and older.
At Dick Beard Chevrolet, we love a challenge, especially if it’s a challenge that benefits our community. Take, for instance, the Pan-Mass Challenge, an amazing, organized bike-a-thon that aims to raise money for potentially life-saving cancer research. This year one of our very own employees is participating in the challenge, where their goal was to ride across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The Pan-Mass Challenge was founded in 1980. Each year, it sends 100% of the funds raised straight to the Jimmy Fund, which collects funds for Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In the last few decades, the Pan-Mass Challenge has become an increasingly popular fundraiser, and has garnered the support of bicyclists, volunteers, and sponsors from all over the country. The three-day event relies heavily on the time and commitment from a team of thousands of volunteers who man water stops, first-aid stations, and more. The cyclists who ride in the Pan-Mass Challenge will raise anywhere from $600 to $7,800 each—and get pretty fit in doing so, too.
Last year, the Pan-Mass Challenge successfully raised $47 million. We’re excited to watch this fundraiser continue to grow, and happy to support someone who is out there riding to make a difference.
