Halloween’s Origins Night Hike – Oct. 28

On Oct. 28, learn about Halloween’s origins through the creative performances of actors along wooded trails and meadows lit by hundreds of glowing Jack ‘O Lanterns.

On this crisp fall night, you’ll join us on our hike as the drama unfolds. You’ll meet characters along the way who will make you laugh with tales of Stingy Jack and the first Jack ‘O Lantern as stops along the way. Following each performance, join us in roasting marshmallows around a fire. The evening ends with hot apple cider and treats from our bake sale.

You’ll also learn why children wear masks and costumes as they travel door-to-door in our modern-day Halloween celebration. While other Halloween programs are designed to frighten, our goal is to educate and enchant.

Guided hikes begin at 6 p.m. and continue at 15-minute intervals until 8:15 p.m. Rain or shine event.
