Tickets available at the door. $8 per person (adult or child over 1 year old; children 1 or under, free). Half-price admission for members.

Trick-or-Treat Safely
Jack-O-Lanterns light the way as you step over the threshold of time and meet the "Ghosts on the Banke." Discover pirate treasure, visit with the wacky witch, look into the future with guidance from our gypsy fortune teller.

Catch a Ghostly Tale
Community members bring history back to life with spooky plays, skits, and interactive improvisation throughout the evening.

Show off Your Costume
March in our New Orleans-style parade, past haunted houses of old and down ghostly lanes full of things that go bump in the night.

Light up the Night
Warm your weary bones by the bonfire.

Pickwick's At the Banke
Decorated for Halloween, with all sorts of magic happening!
