This post is also available in: Spanish


Kids having fun is at the heart of Halloween festivities. If you are like us, your bowl of candy is already by the door waiting for the trick or treaters. This year the Regional Museum of Archaeology will be hosting a spook-tacular pumpkin carving event and taking then trick or treating around Chavón… an eye-deal afternoon for the kids big and small!

Have your child bring his or her pumpkin, and the Museum will provide the kiddies with all the tools they need to get creative and make their very own scary pumpkin, just in time to bring it home for Halloween night!

Plus, ALL participating establishments will welcome the little Chavoners with CANDY!! Once they are done with their pumpkins, the kids will visit the local shops and restaurants for some sweet treats, and don’t forget your own goodie bag! 

The class starts at 5pm at Regional Museum of Archaeology and participation is $500 per child (bring your pumpkin!).

Did you know?

The Taino believed that both the living and the dead had a spirit. For the dead, this spirit was called op’a. The op’a were believed to hide away during the day, believed to be sleeping bats and come out at night to eat guayaba (guava fruit).
