Superheroes, princesses and even the ghost of Henry Ford showed up in full force Friday for Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village.
Unlike most Halloween celebrations, Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village is modeled after the holiday as it was celebrated during the first half of the 20th century and is fun for both kids and adults of all ages.
The village transforms into enchanting paths lined with 1,000 hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns and occupied by characters adorned in elaborate costumes inspired by the Hallowe’en party pamphlets of the early 1900s.
Visitors can listen to enthusiastic storytellers retell the tales of Hansel & Gretel or Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart. Visitors can also walk through Sleepy Hollow Forest or sit back and watch classic 1930s-era cartoons outside of the Sarah Jordan Boarding House.
There's only one weekend left attend this festive event. Tickets are $12.75 for members and $15 for non-members; children under two are free. Time slots are every half hour from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Sundays. Purchase tickets online at www.thehenryford.org or call 313-982-6001.
Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village will take place Oct. 25-27. It is sponsored by the Ford Motor Company Fund.
