Portsmouth NH homes are getting ready for all the ghosts and goblins and tricks and treats coming up over the next few days!  All over town, I see homes festively decorated for the Halloween fun.


Halloween is upon us, and with that comes all kinds of ghostly fun around the Portsmouth New Hampshire Seacoast area.  Parades, parties, gatherings, and most importantly, all that fun trick-or-treating.

The 14th Annual Halloween Parade in Portsmouth is Friday, October 31st.  The parade festivities start at 7pm at the parking lot on the Mill Pond.  The parade route winds its way through downtown Portsmouth and then back to the Mill Pond area.  All are welcome to dress up and take part in the parade.  For more info on Portsmouth's Halloween Parade, click here  --->  Portsmouth NH Halloween Parade

For information on other festivities going on around Portsmouth NH and the local Seacoast areas, be sure to check out all the spooky details here ---->  Portsmouth NH Halloween Fun

Take a tour around Portsmouth homes, you'll see some fabulously decorated homes in all of the neighborhoods this year.  I've seen some homes where the homeowners have gone to great effort in their decorating - we should have a Halloween Decoration Contest just like we have a Christmas Decoration Contest each year.

Have a safe and fun Halloween!

Ann, I posted this on my outside blogs, the times in Ann Arbor, so many people looking for this information. I was shocked at my stats for a post like this.

I always get major hits on my Halloween posts. I had to go back into last years Halloween posts and clearly note that it was 2007 schedule and to click here for 2008.

I love Halloween!!!

Ann, Monika did a nice post on Halloween, maybe you can get together with her and Jay and go dressed as Red Sox fans.  Now that would be scary costumes ........... LOL

Hi Neal - you sound like you just really would rather be doing something other than just sitting and serving!  We can leave our pumpkins out for awhile up here - crisp cool air keeps them looking just peachy for a bit longer.   ;-)

Hey Bill - if you get dressed up, I hope you have a great time! 

Hi Missy - I have this info on my outside blog as well, put it up a few days ago.  Lots of people looking for this info all over the place.

Hi Monika - people just love Halloween, and they all want to know what the trick or treat hours are in all these towns.  Hope the weather participates for all the trick or treaters!

George, George - now what kind of thing is that to say?  Red Sox fans would be a fabulous costume up here and down there in CT - don't you know that yet!!?!!!?!?   Bad George, bad bad George....

Ann, what a great idea to have times for trick or treating. It's just an open schedule here in Sacramento but I like the idea of having times posted for trick-or-treating especially coming from the best Realtor in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Ann Cummings.

Hi Gena - I like having the beginning and ending times much better, and I suppose it's all about what traditions are in any given area.  I hope you have a fun Halloween!

Ann, I love Halloween and Portsmouth is the place to be for this holiday.  If you haven't visited Middle Road yet, it is not to be missed.  I'm off to the parade tonight and then to Haunted Overload in Lee.  We went last year and it was awesome.  I love the new picture, by the way!

Hi Sharon - I had heard about the house on Middle Road for a couple of years now.  Enjoy Lee and the parade.

Thanks for sharing that greeting video.  I do wish more people decorated for Halloween.  I know many folks who decorate inside, but not outside.  I'd love to do it myself, but we have no kids in our neighborhood.  Maybe when the market gets better I'll do it anyway.

Happy Halloween, Ann!  It's funny how traditions vary from place to place - I've never heard of a schedule for trick or treating before, but it makes sense.  Hope the ghosts and goblins in Portsmouth have an excellent night.

Hi Marti - you went home, changed costumes and went back out?  I wish my sisters and I had thought of that when we were younger!  We did used to go back to the houses that had the really good stuff though....  ;-) 

Hi Susan - you should see all the houses that decorate around here.  Each year, we have more and more, and this year has some really clever and very creative decorations.  I wouldn't be surprised if they started up a Halloween Decorating Contest, much like the Christmas Decorating Contest we have here each year.

Hi Bob and Lisa - I'm doing okay, taking each day as it comes - thanks.

Hi Lisa - another area that doesn't have set times for trick or treating!  Do you end up with trick or treaters late at night with no set times?  I think we had plenty of little ghosts and goblins having a great time here!

Many thanks for the comments - much appreciated!

Happy Halloween Ann, and it's nice to spend friday evening with you LOL.  I've had a hankerin' all day to bob for apples.  Not that I've ever done that either! :-)

Hey Carole - I'm chuckling at your urge to bob for apples!  You could always go fill up a bit pan of yours, throw in a few apples, and bob away.   Bob baby bob!!

Happy Friday evening and Happy Halloween!

Ann- I absolutely love your buttons! Can I steal the look and feel of those and just change the color to green?

Ann, I was surprised that the trick-or-treaters this year were very courteous and considerate with it being on Friday.  I thought that the doorbell would be ringing into the night, here in Sacramento but it was all over by 8:00.

I do so love all the little ones and their costumes. Hope you had a Happy Halloween, too!

This year was our warmest year since we have been in Vegas (a little over 10 years!)  We had a mountain of trick or treaters and fun.  Hope you did as well!

Almost didn't recognize you with the pic change, love it!

Katerina - a friend made those especially for me not that long ago.  I'm not sure how she'd feel about someone else changing them up and using them.  Glad you like them!

Gena - glad you had great trick or treaters stop by.  It is always fun to see how the costumes and how clever they look.

Renee - glad you like the new picture, I've gotten a lot of comments about it.  I wouldn't mind a little warmer Halloween, that would have been nice for everyone out that night.

Thanks for the comments!
