Historic Halloween Stroll At Greenfield Village

DEARBORN (WWJ)  – Trick or Treaters of all ages are meandering through Greenfield Village this weekend– getting a historic taste of Halloween.

As part of the park’s Halloween-themed weekend– Kids will walk paths lined with hundreds of hand-carved jack o’ lanterns and end up at nearly a dozen stations were costumed characters will be handing out treats.

Jim Johnson– senior manager of creative programs for the Henry Ford– says the Halloween-themed weekend offers a unique experience for trick-or-treaters of all ages.

“There are a couple of bits of candy and a couple little toys and things that kind of just move you through, mostly the experience is all about what you get to see and the experience there,” said Johnson.

Johnson says that the experience is looking back at the holiday the way it may have been celebrated about a hundred years ago — adding that it’s a sharp contrast to the haunted hay rides of today.

Some things those trick or treaters will find along the way include a headless horseman, a pumpkin quartet and other characters from gothic literature.
