Getting to Hampshire Halloween 2009


Taking PVTA is highly encouraged! And, it’s better for the environment. Hop on the bus (38 or 39 will get you to Hampshire) with your ticket, and you will be let off at the Hampshire College bus circle. As you exit the bus, your ticket will be checked, and you will be given your wristband.


All cars MUST enter from the Bay Road entrance (Eric Carle Museum). Everyone in the car must have a ticket, or the car will be turned away. You will be directed to the proper parking areas. Cars will not be allowed to enter from the RT-116/West St. entrance.
