The Monster Mash was a harvest-festival-meets-Halloween, kids showing up at the Plymouth Station shopping center decked out in costumes while families picked pumpkins and ate food.
Money raised at the event through ticket sales and donations go directly to the Mathews Memorial Fund
Plymouth Crime and Fire Prevention Fund partnered with local businesses and restaurants to fund the activities for families and kids.
