Halloween at Greenfield Village

Hello readers!

Halloween is in twelve more days.  It is one of my favorite holidays.  Even an allergy kid loves candy and treats.  I’m going trick-or-treating for the first time in almost ten years! I’m actually really looking forward to it.  My family and I have sort of avoided traditional trick-or-treating for a while due to my allergy. Instead we have a big Halloween party every year with my whole family at my grandparents’ house.  We also go to trick or treat events, like Trick or Treasure, an allergy free event in a town near us, or my favorite Halloween at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI.

I just went to the Halloween event at Greenfield Village this past weekend. It is such an amazing event.  I usually give away most of the treats, but I took a picture of my little haul below–clearly you aren’t really there for the treats, but I thought you might want to see what they give out.



It is such a fun evening.  As the sun sets, the village is lit up by hundreds of carved pumpkins.  You follow the pumpkin path and are entertained by a a circus sideshow, a fortune teller, giant singing pumpkins, a band of pirates, and amazing actors retelling classic stories in the candlelit night.  My favorite this year was a retelling of Edgar Allen Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart.  Watch out for the Headless Horseman as he rides across the field!  It’s so much fun!

I dressed up as Harry Potter (due to reasons mentioned in an earlier post), and my little sister dressed up as Hermione. The resemblance was actually kind of scary.

Below, I posted some cool pictures from the event from those who are interested.







Feel free to comment about any fun, allergy-safe events in your local area. I might even include it in a future post!

  1. hi Gary-
    my youngest daughter Erin lives in NJ. If anyone in the neighborhood wants to provide an allergy free snack on Halloween-they simply put out a pumpkin painted teal. This lets the kids know some thing cool awaits them- a treat or craft, etc….all allergy free!
    your blog is fab!
