Beacon Hill Civic Association Community Corner: Happy Halloween!

Once again, the BHCA has arranged for the following streets to be closed from 4:00-8:00 PM on Halloween, Monday, Oct. 31:

• Branch Street (from Revere Street to Hancock Street)

• Chestnut Street (from Charles Street to Walnut Street)

• Pinckney Street (from Charles Street to Joy Street)

• West Cedar Street (from Revere Street to Chestnut Street)

• Myrtle Street (from Revere Street to Hancock Street)

Closing these streets will mean that cars cannot be moved during that time. We wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween!

Garlands & Greens

As always, there will be local musical talent, great appetizers, drinks, and comradery. Tickets are $40 for BHCA members and $50 for non-members. For more information, visit or call the BHCA office.

From the BHCA Tree Committee – Trees & Ivy

While ivy may look pretty in a tree pit, it is not healthy for a living tree. If the ivy is growing on the tree bark, it may taking nutrients from the tree. To prevent this, clip the ivy at the base of the tree. It will eventually dry and fall off. DO NOT pull the ivy off the tree! If you have questions, call the BHCA office or write to us at [email protected].
