A Halloween experience of epic—and eerie—proportions! 

As the sun sets at Old Sturbridge Village this October, come see Phantoms by Firelight. Explore the myths and folklore of Halloween at the museum. Evening guests will see the Village in a darker, more eerie light. Adding to the experience is a mysterious troupe of performers who have taken over the Village, including gravity-defying acrobats, creepy conjurers, and fate-tempting fire jugglers who appear in firelight shadows.

Pre-registration required; see below for details.
