Categorized as “frightfully fun for the whole family,” Hallowe’en at Greenfield Village, Oct. 12-28, 2018, houses extravagant costumed characters at what is the most spooktacular Halloween event. Greenfield Village turns into a mid-20th century party.

Enter a place full of fun and adventure (that’s scare-free, to boot). More than 1,000 hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns lace the mile-long, curving path. The Headless Horseman arrives on his horse to tell his story about The Legends of Sleepy Hollow – and dancing skeletons, witches and wizards skip along.

Meet interesting characters including fairies, ghosts and pirates. Each has something to tell. Check out these characters along with familiar faces from the wonderful land of Oz to see what they have to say.

Then, make a stop at the Top Hat Sideshow, a crew performing fire-breathing and daring stunts, to experience live music, treat stations, hot drinks and snacks – and don’t forget to stop by Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park for the event’s newest addition: a thrilling lantern show. Leave with memories and stories only told at this Hallowe’en occasion.
