Bostonians may be known for their rowdy drinking when it comes to celebrating St. Patrick's Day in March, but they can do Halloween just as well, too, it turns out. So if you find yourself in Beantown Saturday, check out these five events.
1. For those who want to get some exercise before the day's festivities, check out the Boston Common 5K Costume dash. Starting in Copley Square and finishing in Boston Common, this quick jog runs through the heart of Boston. Even if you aren't a fan of running, the Costume Dash is also a spectator sport as masquerading joggers bustle downtown. The race starts at 9 a.m. Halloween day.

2. In Ipswich, about a half-hour's drive from Boston, is a family-friendly corn maze and hay ride to get into the spirit of the automnal season. The eight-acre corn maze at Marini Farm, voted fourth best in the country, provides family-friendly fun every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
3.If you want to lean into the party spirit of the night, join other wild Bostonians at an epic pubcrawl for only $10. More than eight bars are included, such as Wild Rover, Mija Cantina and Hong Kong, so pace yourself.

4. The city of Boston is one of the oldest in the country, with a history that stretches back several centuries. Some of the founders of the nation were from Boston, and famed revolutionaries Samuel Adams and Paul Revere are buried in downtown Boston. Many haunted cemetery tours offer guided visits through some of the most well-known cemeteries, and hear some lesser-known ghoulish tales.
5. Channel your inner Taylor Swift at Sterling's restaurant and bar for their Bad Blood Halloween Party. There will be dancing, drinks and plenty of Taylor wannabes, so check it out. Cover charge between $36-46.
