Halloween-themed activities are planned at Heritage Museums & Gardens this weekend. The museum will be open on Friday, October 22, and Saturday, October 23, between 4:30 and 8 PM. Festivities will include a DJ Ooch dance party, scavenger hunt, indoor and outdoor photo opportunities, fire pits, rides on the 1908 Looff carousel, and festive lighting and décor. New elements including an outdoor Halloween play space and “creepy” science labs.

The museum is partnering with the STEM Academy/Sandwich High School Parent Teacher Student Association, Sandwich Soul, and the Sandwich High junior and senior classes to offer this family-friendly event. Visitors will have an opportunity to increase their support of the student organizations by participating in special ticketed activities including the haunted maze, cake walk, face/hand painting, glitter tattoos, fortune tellers, and glow-in-the-dark games. Tickets for all these special activities may be purchased the night of the event at each activity, and both cash and credit and debit cards will be accepted.

The fest will take place, rain or shine. Visitors are encouraged to dress in costume and wear comfortable footwear. Transport will also be available to assist those who need help moving around the grounds. Heritage follows current Centers for Disease Control guidelines and encourages all visitors to wear masks when inside buildings and on transport. Staff and volunteers will follow this protocol.

Timed entry slots are available for both nights from 4:30 to 6 PM or 6 to 8 PM. Admission is $5 per person, with children 2 and younger admitted for free and a maximum of $25 per family. All Heritage activities are included with admission. More information and advance admission tickets are available at heritagemuseumsandgardens.org.
