It Came from the Swamp

Delicious frights await those brave enough to board the riverboat and learn the legend of the swamp monster that lurks in the depths of the Blackstone River.

The Blackstone Valley Tourism Council and Vision Media Productions invented an entirely new Halloween event this year — a socially distant 20-minute cruise down the Blackstone River full of surprises and scares.

Costumes are encouraged! All COVID-19 precautions are taken: the riverboat is cleaned between trips, capacity is limited to 15 passengers and all passengers are required to wear masks. Tickets must be purchased in advance at
