Posted on: Friday, October 10, 2014 - 12:00pm

2014 Columbus Day Weekend: 3 Things To DoAll CHR offices will be open on Monday, so we want you to take advantage of the fall season on our behalf! Here are three things happening this weekend in the Boston, MA and Providence, RI area:


The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular: Head over to Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, RI for this annual candlelit tradition. The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular has been putting on breathtaking pumpkin displays for over 25 years and this year is no exception. This year's theme is "Jack-O-Lanterns from A to Z". Visit the Roger Williams Zoo website to plan your visit.


Opening Our Doors: Presented by the Fenway Alliance, you can sample from many Boston cultural delights. Dozen of concerts, stage plays, dances, and workshops are lined up this year as well as their usual open house participants such at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Emerald Necklace Conservancy, and the MFA Boston. Visit their site to see the full schedule of events and download their mobile app. 


King Richard's Faire: It's the second to last weekend before the Faire closes for the season. Lucky for you the King will hold court on Monday to accommodate the holiday weekend. If you've never been, you don't need to dress in costume but it is highly encouraged. In fact, this weekend they are hosting a Fairies & Pirates Costume Contest for ages 11 and younger. Check out their site for hours of operation.
