Historical Society Hosts Harvest Fest at Morrison House

Londonderry trick-or-treaters and Halloween fun-seekers are invited to the third annual Trick-or-Treat on Main Street and Harvest Fest from noon to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22. This year’s community events feature a host of family-friendly activities for all ages.

Trick-or-Treat on Main Street will take place from noon to 2 p.m. and has been hosted by RE/MAX 1st Choice realty for the last 22 years. Register at RE/MAX at 123 Nashua Road in the Crossroads Mall for Trick-or-Treating.

Children will receive a map of participating businesses, which will be stamped at each visit, and will have the opportunity to collect treats at participating businesses along the Nashua Road (Route 102) and Mammoth Road corridor. Participating businesses will have a sign in their windows.

Orchard Christian Fellowship on Pillsbury Road will be hosting “Trunk or Treat” as the last stop for Trick-or-Treat on Main Street.

The Londonderry Historical Society’s Reverend Morrison House on Pillsbury Road will offer a variety of activities including tours, games, Tug of War, donuts on a string, an obstacle course, “pumpkin chuckin’,” an Apocalypse dance with karaoke, a live demonstration by blacksmith Stephen Galperin and ghost stories in the barn. The Humane Society will attend with animals to adopt.

“This town-wide event offers something fun for the middle school-aged kids to do, and gives them a place to meet up with their friends and share their costumes,” said Deb Paul, publisher of the Londonderry Times and a member of the Londonderry Historical Society, which is hosting the event from 2 to 4 p.m.

Most activities are free, and those with a charge will help raise funds for maintenance of the Morrison House grounds.

Paul said the Historical Society is seeking volunteers to help with set-up and clean-up, as well as contributions for large prize donations, food donations and two fire pits.
