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.
