A special scavenger hunt will guide guests to the treasures with prizes awarded to lucky ghouls. Tickets are $4 for ages two and up.
Plan a visit to Greenfield Village and step back in time to a turn-of-the-20th century Hallowe’en. Follow an endless path of hand-carved jack-o-lanterns and meet colorful characters along the way.

Candlelit Halloween dinners and games are also on tap at the Eagle Tavern – reservations are a must.
