DEARBORN (WWJ) – The sights and sounds of All Hollows’ Eve and the spooky spirits of the past come to life at Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village, October 14-16, 21-23 and 28-30.
Trick-or-treaters of all ages can follow the paths throughout Greenfield Village lined with 800 hand-carved jack-o-lanterns to 11 uniquely themed stations manned by characters in elaborate costumes handing out treats. Along the trek, visitors will meet all kinds of festive figures from glowing skeletons and singing pumpkins to flying spirits and attention-getting storytellers. And let’s not forget the pack of pirates on the loose and looking for gold.
Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village is the perfect evening filled with the spooky and the silly. Passing by the Village Green, spirits will rise again from the graveyard, guarded by a spooky yet humorous hunched-back man. A stroll through Sleepy Hollow will bring the evening to an end, but not before the Headless Horseman makes his presence known.
Once the goody bags are full, visitors can sit back and relax with some tasteful Hallowe’en treats at one of the Village’s restaurants. Savor some hot brew, cold beverages and snacks at Mrs. Fisher’s, or try a variety of delightful meal options at A Taste of History. For the adults of course, Beer Guild Hall will serve Greenfield Village’s own signature brew.
Time slots are every half hour from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays.
Tickets to Greenfield Village are $22 adults, $21 seniors (ages 62 and up), $16 youth (ages 5-12); children under five and members are free. For more information, call 313-982-6001 or visit www.thehenryford.org.
