Halloween is just under 3 weeks away and approaching rapidly and it provides more proof that the Berkshires of Massachusetts is the country’s premier four-season, year-round resort destination.
Abbott’s Limousine in the Berkshires is Located just 2-1/2 hours from the heart of both New York City and Boston the Berkshires beckons visitors from all over the Northeast to come relax and celebrate beautiful scenery, great weather and unparalleled cultural attractions.
At Abbott’s Limousine we cherish the idea that we have all of the prerequisites of the quintessential Halloween destination- fading fall color, fallen leaves on the ground, cooling temperatures, and pumpkins everywhere.
In the Berkshires of western Massachusetts there is as usual, a cornucopia of things to do to celebrate Halloween. Abbott’s Limo loves to get involved with the activities and take pride in sharing them whenever possible.
Among the many great events on the local calendar there are four very intriguing ones we chose to highlight for you. Arrowhead, the home of Herman Melville, and the birthplace of Moby Dick, has scheduled performances of Melville, Haunted that will be taking place on the last two full weekends of October (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday October 20-22 & 27-29).
On October 26th the Stockbridge Chamber of Commerce is holding the Halloween Week Walk & Talk – Luminaries: Exploring Stockbridge Cemetery which will be preceded by a cider and donut reception on the Old Town Square and promises fun for the whole family.
Things will start to get more hauntingly interesting on Saturday, October 29th when Edith Wharton’s The Mount, in Lenox, hosts Halloween at the Mount. A family-friendly ghost tour will begin at 6:00 pm and will culminate with a reading of Wharton’s “The Triumph of the Night” performed by Ariel Brock and Jonathan Epstein at 8:00pm. Light refreshments and cider & donuts will be included in the price of admission. Later on the Ghost Tour will begin at 11:00 pm for audiences 12 and older and will take participants on a haunting stroll through the dark rooms and corridors of the mansion. This is in addition to Friday Night Fright Ghost Tours (12 & over) taking place every Friday through the end of October.
Finally, on October 30th and 31st, Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum, in Lenox, will be the stage for a series of events and demonstrations focusing on the paranormal. Professional paranormal investigators will discuss techniques and equipment, and share video evidence of paranormal activity that they have recorded.
There is also a jam-packed cultural calendar of concerts, plays and other performances at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington and The Colonial Theater in Pittsfield slated for the remainder of October.
