Come learn about the Origins of Halloween during a nighttime hike on a glowing jack ‘o lantern-lit path.
After each group finishes making a Halloween craft at the Watershed Center, they are off with their trail guides following the decorated path. The group makes a half-dozen stops on the hourlong hike and will meet characters in an Irish folktale including Stingy Jack, the Devil and angels.
While other Halloween programs are designed to frighten, our goal is to educate and entertain. After the performance, people will roast marshmallows around a campfire. Then they’ll head back to the Watershed Center for refreshments and goodies from a bake sale.
The various sessions of the hourlong guided hikes begin at 6 p.m., with different groups leaving every 15 minutes. The last hike starts at 8:30 p.m. Space is limited so register early to get your preferred time slot. General audience, ages five and older.
Dress warmly and get ready to have fun!
