Are you looking for an old-fashioned Halloween celebration? Look no further than Greenfield Village’s Hallowe’en. During Hallowe’en you will follow a one mile path through the historical village. The path is lined with over 1000 hand-carved jack-o-lantern. Along the way, you will meet up with historical re-enators as you stop at the various treat stations.
We attended Hallowe’en on Friday, October 16 as a guest reviewer for Living to the Fullest. Check out our review on their site.
All attendees – child and adult alike – receive treats at stations throughout the village, so don’t forget to bring treat bags for everyone. Even though I don’t usually do a full costume for myself, I usually opt for something festive – witch’s hat or glow sticks. Other options include a mask, sweatshirt, festive socks or mittens.
We have attended Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village several times over the years and I wrote reviews in 2013 and 2011. We definitely recommend attending Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village. We are checking our schedule and ticket availability to make plans for this year’s event.
Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village is held on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights starting on Friday, October 9. It runs through Sunday, October 25. Admission to Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village is on the half-hour between 6:30 and 9p on Friday and Saturday nights and 6:30 and 8p on Thursday and Sunday nights. Admission tickets are for a specific half-hour entry window. Tickets do sell out fast, so I recommend buying them as soon as possible. Tickets are available online. Tickets are $16/adults and children over the age of 2. Henry Ford Members save $2.25/ticket and pay $13.75 for those ages 2 and up. Children under 2 are free.
Hallowe’en at Greenfield Village is held Rain or Shine…and we had a bit of rain in 2013. Fortunately it wasn’t heavy and didn’t last for long and we were able to find cover under some trees. I was worried about my daughter’s white Princess Leia costume getting dirty from the gravel paths, but I just made it a bit shorter with the belt and it was fine.
Over the years we have attended, we have had various arrival times. While the earlier times are nice with younger kids, you lose some of the magic of the jack-o-lantern lined paths.
