Good afternoon everyone!

I'm new here at the Cauldron, but I am definitely not new to paganism nor to various online communities. I'm glad to be here and I look forward to some wonderful and productive discussions.

Mabon is just around the corner and I am very excited, as many of you must be. Having recently moved to Massachusetts, I'd like to have an outdoor ritual with several family members and friends but I can't seem to find a suitable location. I was wondering if any Cauldron members had any suggestions for an appropriate place. A lot of parks here seem to close at night, and being a country girl from down south, I don't like the amount of attention that you draw in the city green areas. State parks, as far as I can tell, close at sundown and trouble is not what I'm looking for.

Other than private land, I'm not sure what options there are. Have any of you from the area found a gem of a space? Maybe a campsite.... hm.....

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

As I'm in Texas, I can't help you directly. However, perhaps some groups in the area might have some ideas. I'm sure there a quite a few in the Boston area, at least.  For example, I know when I lived in San Antonio, it was fairly easy to get a permit for after-hours use of some city parks. Perhaps that's true of parks in some Massachusetts' cities too?

Are you in western MA or eastern? (I live in Springfield, MA.) If you are out here, there are quite a few areas that would be all right for worship. Also, if you are in this portion of the state--western--then I can direct you to a new age store that could probably help to teach you that.

Hello, I am in eastern MA but travel may not be too much of a problem so I would be interested to hear your suggestions for worship. Regarding the new age store, I'm not quite sure what you're referring to.

There's a store in my area that would be better equipped to help you with local places for outdoor worship. However, since you're living in the Eastern half, I can't suggest anything that wouldn't be a two hour drive, at the least. There's various paths on Mt. Tom in my area that lead to incredibly quiet places. Not to mention, there's the woods that surround the entire Pioneer Valley. There's bound to be a quiet field somewhere.

Fantastic, thanks for your input. I'll try to check out Mt. Tom, and I would appreciate the name of the store then, as any help is welcome.
