A two hour tour: half in the “Trolley of the Doomed” and half walking through two of the oldest burying grounds in Boston. Learn more about Boston’s most sinister historical figures and which ones supposedly still roam the city. Scary!
Halloween on the Harbor

Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror
Friday, October 30, 8pm
Eight Berklee College of Music students are collaborating with Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart to reimagine the 1922 silent horror film “Nosferatu.” They have reworked the score and will be presenting it at Symphony Hall in what will truly be a one of a kind experience.
Cirque of the Dead
Rock out with Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band as they provide the soundtrack to the Boston Circus Guild high-flying circus act. The show blends acrobatics, aerial and burlesque with humor and gore. Don’t forget about the costume contest so come wearing your Halloween’s finest.
