Halloween Fun at Greenfield Village

The Henry Ford in Dearborn brings back its old-fashioned 'Hallowe'en' family event in October 2011, featuring goblins, witches and spooky fun

Get information on the 2012 Hallowe'en in Greenfield Village event here.

A bit of fear (and tons of fun) await you and the kids as you meet the witches, goblins and Headless Horseman of turn-of-the-20th century lore! It's all at the annual 'Hallowe'en' Halloween event at Greenfield Village in Dearborn. The fun happens Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 14 till Oct. 30, 2011.

Kids are encouraged to wear their costumes and trick-or-treat at 11 themed treat stations. Hand carved jack-'o-lanterns (800 of them!) light the way as you encounter all kinds of creepy and curious characters. Parents and children will love exploring the entirely decorated village. This historic spot is known for its cool scenery and costumes, so you won't be disappointed. Definitely bring a camera!

Time slots are every 30 minutes from 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from 6:30 p.m.-8 p.m. on Sunday. Be sure to check in advance for availability.

See the Metro Parent listing for the address and other details on the 2011 Halloween event at Greenfield Village.
