Enjoy some spooky fun in 18th-century style! Trick or Treat at Old York’s historic buildings in the village: Jefferds Tavern, York Corner Schoolhouse, Emerson-Wilcox House, and the Old Gaol. Creepy characters and ghosts of Halloweens past will hand out candy to all who have the courage to knock on Old York’s historic doors.
Children of all ages are invited to help Old York fill and illuminate the stone walls around the Old Burying Ground with jack-o’-lanterns. Carved pumpkins may be dropped off at the wall between 2 and 2:30pm on October 29th. A Lighting of the Pumpkins will happen at 5pm, and jack-o’-lanterns may be picked up by their makers after 6pm that evening.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
In event of heavy rain, the event is cancelled.
Parking is available at the Old York Museum Center, 3 Lindsay Road, York, ME 03909.
