The fall is one of our most favorite times of year here in Boston for its glorious colors and cool breezes. This year, we have a few more reasons to celebrate what is arguably the most beautiful season here in the city. From Ghost Ship Harbor, a new Halloween attraction aboard USS Salem brought to us by the creator of Fright Dome Las Vegas, to food and wine festivals, this month is full of things to do around town.  Here’s a look at five events you won’t want to miss.
