Historical Hallowe'en

Sun Oct 27, 2019
5:00pm to 7:00pm
3 and up
$20/person (Members $15)

The Historical Society's annual Hallowe’en extravaganza lures families in to experience the spookier side of history! Kids and their grown-ups imagine the past through Victorian-era fortune-telling, creepy crafts, fun activities, and of course, lots of candy.

Among the activities in store:

  • Ride a real pony (Outdoor courtyard)
  • Add to the glow-in-the-dark wall mural (Outdoor courtyard)
  • Create your own horse on a stick (Outdoor courtyard)
  • Pick and decorate pumpkins from the Society's patch (Outdoor courtyard)
  • Play "Pin the Tail on the Horse" (Lower-level classroom)
  • Create your own candy bags (Lower-level classroom)
  • Listen to spooky stories (DCHM Library)
  • Craft secret messages with a Living Historian spymaster (Lower-level classroom)
  • Trick-or-treat for candy (Everywhere!)

In case of bad weather, activities—but not the pony, unfortunately—will be moved inside the Museum.
