Anticipate the arrival of All-Hallows Eve by joining us for an evening of outdoor fun! Stroll along some of the darker, oft-overlooked portions of our museum property and enjoy the spectacle of several hundred lit jack-o-lanterns on display! Then play a lawn game, enjoy some live music, warm up by a roaring fire, create a fall-themed craft, or take a spooky guided tour in which you learn about the darker side of life in a 19th century seaport town.

Third Annual Pumpkin Passage - Nature’s Art Village

A spectacular experience of lights, sights, and sounds to scratch that Halloween itch without the frights. Walk the trail and share in several spooky Halloween experiences. Top your night off with roasted marshmallows, some warm cider, or a hot chocolate! Nature’s Art Village is proud to bring back our haunted Halloween experience for the third time! Raptor Bay Trail has been taken over by goblins, witches, and mythical creatures! Don’t worry, the scares are minimal but the lights are dazzling! Family members of all ages can enjoy themselves. Five different experiences await you on almost a half-mile of our immaculate trail. Begin at Candy Corn Corral where you might get a little fright… depending on your opinion of Candy Corn. Staged with twinkling lights and massive candy corn companions, you’ll find yourself smiling instead of shrieking to start your stroll. When you’re finished meandering through the funny faux confections, you’ll make your way into Graveyard Grotto. The grotto is filled to the brim with clanking bones and the ghosts of our past, so be sure to pay your respects as you walk through.
