Halloween 2020: Lighting of the Pumpkins


Halloween 2020: Lighting of the Pumpkins
Friday, October 30, 2020
Old York Museum Center, 3 Lindsay Road, York, ME 03909
Free (no reservations required)

Enjoy a spooky spectacle in 18th-century style! Following the success of last year’s popular community event, Old York will once again illuminate the walls of the Old Burying Ground in York Village with jack-o’-lanterns. You may also catch a glimpse of some creepy characters and ghosts of Halloweens past lurking around the burying ground and historic buildings (Jefferds Tavern, York Corner Schoolhouse, Emerson-Wilcox House, and the Old Gaol). The pumpkins will be lit starting at 5 pm.

Due to COVID-19 and Maine state social-distancing guidelines, this event will be drive by only. Attendees are requested to stay in their cars while viewing the event. This is a fun and safe way to mark the Halloween holiday.

This event is FREE and open to the public. In the event of heavy rain, the event is postponed until October 31.
