This Friday and Saturday, ghouls and ghosts of all ages can celebrate the return of Family Frights at Jamestown Settlement, a Halloween-themed museum night for children.

According to a news release from Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, the spooktacular event will feature trick-or-treating, ghost stories, creepy crafts, haunting games, and phantasmagoric face-painting for elementary-school-aged children from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. 

Jamestown Settlement’s living-history area will host trick-or-treating in several friendly and frightening haunted houses, including a new Addams Family themed house in a recreated early 17th-century fort.

According to the release, visitors will be able to witness a witch trial, warm up at a shoreline bonfire, visit a watermen’s necropolis, hop aboard three lost-to-history ships: the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery. Each ship will have its own spooky theme.

Admission is $7 per child, ages 4-12, and $3 per adult. Children ages 3 and under are free. Each party must include at least one adult over age 18. Tickets can be purchased online or on site at Jamestown Settlement. Tickets also will be available at the door each night. Annual passes and other discounts do not apply.
