Over 400 volunteers in the community come together for
three nights (October 27, 28, & 29) and one
matinee show (October 29th) to provide an unforgettable evening of Halloween outdoor theater. During the show mysterious guides lead guests through the dark and foreboding forest, where paths are lit by over 1,000 flickering Jack-O’-Lanterns. Throughout their passage, visitors encounter approximately eleven Halloween-themed performances, where strange and fascinating characters entertain our guests with traditional New England tales. The scenes range in their entertainment from scary to funny to artistic.
