Then there's the design-your-own-scarecrow contest and, for the little ones, a chance to interact with friendly farm animals and partake in trick-or-treating.

Proceeds will support a local butchery business looking to expand.

"I'm getting all the necessary licenses approved to run the first red meat custom mobile in Massachusetts legally," Mary Tripp said. "I aim to build a custom unit equipped to dispatch, cut and wrap the carcass on site."

Mary's been a butcher for several years, inspired by her grandfather.

"It's truly my life’s passion," she said. "There's a big need, especially now, to help the homestead/farmstead community understand the full process in which these animals are raised."

More information is available by calling 508-558-6717.

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
