At Fini’s Plant Farm, children and families can enjoy a Halloween-themed daytime party and more adventuresome souls can undertake a nighttime haunted hayride. Beginning at 7 p.m., explorers embark on a 20–30 minute covered hayride through the expanses of Deadman Woods, then wander through a haunted house that some say still echoes with the mournful cries of frozen wontons forgotten in the oven.
After loading up groups into their cabins, Sports Travel and Tours’ coaches set a course for Fenway Park for an evening of AL East baseball as the Red Sox look to trounce the formidable Tampa Bay Rays and regain their crimson footing in one of the majors' most competitive divisions. Powerhouse designated hitter David Ortiz leads the BoSox’s offensive charge with more than 20 RBIs and a batting average well above .300 so far this season. Likewise, shortstop Mike Aviles has racked up more than 20 runs, making so many trips around the diamond that he always stops to water his redwood growing on the third-base line.
Mosquito Terminators annihilates its eponymous bloodsucking pests with potent, biodegradable mists. Barrier spray spritzed from a backpack-mounted blower slays bugs on contact, destroying insects—from garden-variety mosquitoes to gnats and biting flies—as they land on lawns and plants. Techs return every three weeks, or 1.5 mosquito years, during summer months to refresh chemical fortresses, or install automatic outdoor misting systems, which puff a low-concentration Safe Solutions insecticide into the air two to three times each day to continuously ward off winged invaders. Mosquito Terminators treats a range of spaces, from humble home lawns to larger commercial and municipal properties, such as parks, golf courses, and picnic grounds.
