Legends & Lanterns:

A "Spirited" Journey Through Halloween History

Step right up, curious visitors! Behold the wondrous sights and sounds of the greatest show in the netherworld! Journey into our realm of the unknown where magical, mysterious, and wonderfully weird adventures await!

A plethora of playful paranormal poltergeists have traveled from regions beyond in order to make Saint Charles their new favorite “haunt.” These notorious witches, villains, and phantoms from lore and legend have unleashed the magic of their enchanted lanterns in order to bring you the eeriest entertainment anywhere from Tombstone to Transylvania. But don’t worry—these friendly ghouls have more treats to offer than tricks, and they enjoy meeting “little monsters” of all ages.

As you explore every mysterious nook and cranny of Main Street, use this guide to “unearth” various activities that will bring the backstories and origins of All Hallow’s Eve to “life.”

Prepare to embark on a “spirited” journey through Halloween history…

If you come to the festival in a costume with a full mask or one that is insensitive to our young audience you will be asked to change or leave the festival boundaries.
