This Halloween season, Ipswich River will be transformed into a magical forest at sundown!

Join us for a guided walk along our Halloween trail, home to some interesting creatures that come out just for Halloween. Glowing luminaries and carved jack o' lanterns will light our way. Learn firsthand about the creatures of the night on this fun family-friendly walk.

The program begins in the Barn, where a variety of activities will keep children entertained before the outdoor walk. Allow about 1.5 hours total for the program.

At the end of the walk, warm up by the campfire as you enjoy fresh local cider and a treat! Children and adults are encouraged to come in costume, but dress warmly since we will be outdoors most of the time.

Event is held rain or shine. Please dress for the weather.
