The region’s favorite spooktacular, family-friendly, Halloween event is back for a fifth year! Visitors will experience PA’s only haunted, mule-drawn canal boat ride, a ghost walk to the locktender’s house, a hay ride and pumpkin patch, and lots of fun activities and snacks.  This year ghost walk participants will encounter tragic spirits from railroad history, tying in with the National Canal Museum’s special exhibition “Powering America: Pennsylvania’s Anthracite Railroads”.

Refreshments include fresh popcorn, hot apple cider, and caramel apple dippers. Craft activities and a pumpkin to take home are also included in the price! This spooky evening offers fun for kids and adults alike.
