Trick or Treating on Melville Ave Dorchester – Boston Globe Article

Stock up the candy for Melville Ave trick or treatingTrick or Treating on Melville Ave Dorchester – Boston Globe Article   The Boston Globe had a front page article today about Halloween trick or treating in Dorchester on Melville Avenue.

Melville Avenue is a lovely street – lined with handsome Victorians on spacious lots.  The Codman Square House Tour, which sadly was discontinued several years ago, always featured houses on Melville Ave and nearby so I’ve been in many of them.

Turns out that this Victorian neighborhood is also a destination spot for Boston trick or treaters. 

One homeowner “plans to give out some 2,000 Reese’s peanut butter cups, packets of M & Ms and Milk Duds, and lollipops.”  2,000!!  I’m lucky to get 30 trick or treaters and am consumed by envy. 

Another resident remembers that “one year, 50 children formed a line outside their front doors, patiently waiting their turn for treats”.

Read more about this Halloween extravaganza in the Boston Globe article about Melville Ave, Dorchester trick or treating.

    Hi Liz ~ If it makes you feel any better, I may get half the number of trick or treaters that you do…

    2,000 – The mind boggles at the thought!

    Hi Denise! The thought of 2K trick or treaters blew my mind too – as did the idea of 50 kids lined up at the door waiting for candy. It’s like trick or treat nirvana. Bummer about the low turnout at your place – everybody likes to get trick or treaters I think.
