"Haunted Williamstown" Halloween Event

"Haunted Williamstown" Halloween Event
Friday, Oct. 30th, (7-9:30 pm) and Saturday, Oct. 31st (4-6 & 7-9)
Williamstown is celebrating New England history with their annual "Haunted Williamstown" Halloween event. A hugely popular spectacle with the Northern Berkshire communities, this year they are celebrating "the strange and amazing history at 1095 Main Street." A "haunted history tour" takes visitors through 3 centuries of unusual activities at the site. There are also free shows each day: Magician, Scott Jameson, and Edgar Allan Poe reading from his work "The Raven." Food, games, jugglers and a spooky tour of the history museum round out the festivities.
This annual event is a fundraiser for the Williamstown House of Local History, and attracts collaborators from all over Northern Berkshire County, including Main Street Stage Theatre Company and various local artists. Entrance fees cover all activities and are as follows: $10/person for the Friday Night Preview Party; $5/child (11 & under); $8/person (12 & under) for Saturday's activities.
