Dress up your little ones (and yourself too, if you like) in your favorite costumes and head over to the Ritz-Carlton on Boston Common for the 2nd annual Halloween Brunch, sponsored by Boston Babies. Whether you're a dinosaur or a buzzing bee, you're sure to enjoy the breakfast buffet featuring not only favorites such as eggs and pancakes, but New England fall must haves, from cider donuts to pecan pie. While your little one runs around the ballroom with like-minded trick-or-treaters, you'll have time to socialize with other parents and check out "the Gallery," showcasing a select few of Boston's best family friendly vendors, newest novelties and hidden jewels. Music will be provided by Boston-based Kelly Rice, who will perform folky favorites, as well as singing kids' classics during a mini music class for all the little monsters. With all its events, Boston Babies sponsors a philanthropic organization to raise both awareness and funds; this event's partner is Mass. General Hospital for Children. All guests are asked to bring a new or gently used toy to the event, which will be donated to the child life center and its pediatric patients. (All stuffed animals must be new in order to provide gifts that are safest for the children.) Monetary donations, gift cards as well as items taken from the kids' wish list are best and greatly appreciated. Sun., Oct. 14, 10 a.m. - noon. Adults, $70; children, $10; under 12 months, free. The Ballroom of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Boston Common, 10 Avery St., Boston. www.bostonbabies.wordpress.com
