History and Halloween will collide later this month at Jamestown Settlement.
On Oct. 26 and 27, Jamestown Settlement is bringing back its Family Frights programming for a fifth year, according to the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation.
Activities include “trick-or-treating, ghostly tales and grisly games” both evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Jamestown Settlement, 2110 Jamestown Road.
The Cigar Box String Band will play at the gazebo. Walk further, and guests can see ghostly figures along the Forest of Frights boardwalk, near Jamestown Settlement’s 1607 ships.
Trick-or-treaters can board the haunt Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery ships as well, which will each have their own unique theme.
There are also games for children, including pumpkin bowling, hula hoop and bean bag toss, as well as crafts, face-painting and fortune-telling.
Smoke, lanterns and sound effects will line Jamestown Settlement’s recreated early 1600s fort, where trick-or-treaters can find more goodies to take home.
The fort will also have both friendly and frightening haunted houses, which have themes including “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” and “Heroes & Villains of Gotham.”
Tickets for Family Frights are $7 for children ages 4 to 12, $3 for adults, and free for children under 3.
Groups must include at least one adult.
Tickets can be purchased in advance online or in-person at Jamestown Settlement.
Annual passes or other discounts do not apply to this special event.
