Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village


Disclosure: We received complimentary tickets for the family to attend Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village in exchange for a post telling you all about the event.  All opinions are that of my own.

Hallowe'en Greenfield Village - Death

When fall time comes, there are so many great things to do in Michigan. One of the newest attractions we’ll take part in from now on will be Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village!  We are already super fans of going to Greenfield Village throughout the year because of all the great historical things you get to see and learn, but there is just something about going in after hours and seeing the place at night with the ghosts and goblins around!

Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village

Hallowe'en Greenfield Village - Pumpkins

Since this was our first year attending, we weren’t sure what to expect.  So, I’m going to tell you right here and now that you want to dress up! At least, allow the kids to dress up and enjoy the evening. Most of the attendees are dressed in their Halloween costumes, including the adults! You don’t have to, but I’m sure it is a lot more fun for everyone if you are.

Hallowe'en Greenfield Village - Jack-O-Lanterns

Next, be ready for some walking. We walked for about 2 hours throughout Greenfield Village, following a jack-o’-lantern path and you could spend even more time if you were to stop at each attraction and watch the performances and listen to the storytelling.  It is also very crowded so be ready to wait to see some of the attractions!

Frightfully Fun for the Whole Family

Hallowe’en Greenfield Village – ScarecrowStroll down streets and alleys haunted by over 1,000 carved jack-o’-lanterns and lavishly costumed characters during America’s most spooktacular Halloween event.

Enjoy our historically themed Hallowe’en event. Follow a mile-long, curving path illuminated by the flickering light of hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns and meet classic costumed characters along the way. Feel the chilly whoosh of air as the Headless Horseman rides out of the shadows of Firestone Farm’s fields, and banter with witches, wizards and dancing skeletons. They’re everywhere along Jack-o’-Lantern Boulevard. The good news is that you can bring the entire family. This is a kid-friendly, nightmare-free Halloween gathering.

October 10-12, 17-19 and 24-26, 2014 – Time slots are every 1/2 hour 6:30pm-9pm Fridays & Saturdays. Sundays 6:30pm – 8pm

Tickets rain or shine. Complete program presented in all weather conditions!

    Great coupon. I love Greenfield Village – I’ve only gone once in the fall though, usually it’s during the summer. They had a nice pumpkin display when I went, too.

      We went on Saturday and it was perfect. Wasn’t too cold and not windy at all. Made for a nice fall evening. Started out still light out and got darker throughout the trail.

    that looks like such fun, loved the photos of the carved pumpkins by day and by night. We have several places here in Maine that do things like this, but I have to say we’ve never been.
