DEARBORN, Michigan – Spirits from classic tales come to life to haunt and delight at Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village, October 12-14, 19-21 and 26-28, 2012. A spook-tacular event for all ages, tickets are $12.75 for members and $15 for non-members. Children two and under are free.
A guided path lit by 900 hand-carved jack-o-lanterns will take guests through the Village as they experience the bewitching holiday as it was celebrated during the first half of the 20th century. Visitors looking for both a trick and a treat will encounter plenty of colorful characters inspired by numerous Hallowe’en party guides from the early 1900s at stops along the way.
Characters from classic literary works Treasure Island, Hansel and Gretel and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow come to life as guests continue down the jack-o-lantern lit path. Search for buried treasure with pirates along the Suwanee River, hear a chilling retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart or stroll through the Sleepy Hollow Forest, but beware the infamous headless horseman.
Take in a classic scary movie from the silent film era near the Sarah Jordan Boarding House or boo-gie on down to Mrs. Fishers for some frightfully good music.
Guests hungry for more Hallowe’en treats can choose from a variety of delightful fall favorites including hot cider, doughnuts and our own Greenfield Village brews for the adults. Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village is supported by the Ford Motor Company Fund.
