Children Invited to Trick or Treat with Ghosts, Ghouls at Tryon Palace

Ghouls, ghosts and witches are taking over Tryon Palace Saturday, Oct. 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. during All Hallow’s Eve. Children ages 12 and under are invited to dress in Halloween costumes for free admission and trick-or-treating around Tryon Palace. 

All Hallow’s Eve gets children in the Halloween spirit with friendly ghosts, crafts, games, spooky stories and candy. While wandering the haunted grounds, children encounter friendly ghosts like Thadeus Thorton Helpit the blacksmith, Lady Katherine the highwayman, Lucretia Crookshank, Mistress Penelope the not-so-wicked witch and others.

Designed for ages 12 and younger, the brave children who attend All Hallow’s Eve will receive candy and toys by trick-or-treating with the different characters, playing games and making take-home crafts.

Admission is free for children dressed in Halloween costumes (offer limited to ages 12 and younger), $4 for ages 13-18, $10 for adults and free for Tryon Palace Foundation members. 

All passes include admission to the Tryon Palace gardens and the North Carolina History Center, which includes the Regional History Museum, the interactive Pepsi Family Center, the Duffy Gallery exhibit Celebrating Tryon Palace, and the exhibit Crown of Life: 300 Years of Christ Church.
