Dearborn, Mich. — Follow the illuminated jack-o-lantern paths and stroll through the village for a spooktacular night at Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village running every Saturday and Sunday night until October 31.

See the Grim Reaper as he welcomes you to begin your journey.  Visit Witch Hazel’s Used Broom Lot where you can take a picture on a broomstick as the witches stand by.  The Top Hat Side Show has shows of ancient arts such as sword swallowing and fire acts.  The Village Graveyard is a spooky place if you dare.  Beware of the ghostly spirits!

There is music with the Transylvania Trio singing ghostly Halloween songs like monster mash.  There is also storytelling as Mother Goose reads classic stores to the little children.  Harvest activities were on the agenda such as dying yarn, brewing beer, frying fritters and making sauerkraut.

Take a train ride on the Hallowe’en Express as you go through the enchanted woods and see ghosts, monsters and urban legends.  Round trip excursions depart from the Firestone Station.  The train leaves every 15 minutes.  This is an additional $2 and can be purchased at the box office or online along with your ticket.

Plenty of food was available at many different locations throughout the Village.  No need to go hungry!  Young and old were dressed up in their costumes.  It was fun to watch the little ones in their trick or treat costumes.  There were many things to see and do during your Halloween adventure.

General admission tickets for members are $16.25 and non-members are $19.  Children under 2 are free.  Due to high seasonal demand, they recommend purchasing tickets in advance online.
