Dearborn, Mich. (PRWEB) September 28, 2015
Experience new costumed characters, fire-breathing performers, death-defying sideshow stunts, and one of the largest collections of hand-carved pumpkins around during Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village, Oct. 9-11, 15-18 and 22-25.
New this year, Greenfield Village welcomes Top Hat Sideshow, a carnival vaudeville act that brings to this event the spirit and thrills of the traveling sideshows and carnivals of the early part of the 1900s. Taking the stage next to Wright Home, this traveling carnival vaudeville experience will include sword swallowing, fire breathing, life threatening escapes, mind reading, death-defying sideshow stunts, as well as mind-bending illusions with a comedic flair.
Along the path lit by more than 1,000 hand-carved jack-o-lanterns, guests will meet new costumed characters including the Wolfman, Queen of Hearts, the Bride of Frankenstein and possibly a ghost or two near Webster Home. Guests will also be treated to more swashbuckling action, live singing and dancing from Hallowe’en favorites the Pirates of the Suwanee. Near the evening’s end, the Headless Horseman will ride again through a transformed Sleepy Hollow.
Tickets are $13.75 for members and $16 for non-members, children under two are free. Time slots are every half hour from 6:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays.
