Could Beacon Hill have Salem beat when it comes to Halloween?
Trick-or-treaters packed the streets of the tony Boston neighborhood Monday night as some roads were closed off, resulting in crowds of costumed kids on a quest for candy.
The neighborhood’s haunted happenings had so much buzz, “Beacon Hill” became a trending term on Twitter late Monday evening.
The decorations were tough to beat, with whole atriums and buildings decked out with pumpkins, cobwebs, floating silhouettes, and other spooky material.
And if you thought uplighting for that wedding was expensive, check out the multi-colored lights on this Beacon Hill brownstone:
