This year, we’re going to add a handful of Fall Road Trip ideas to our usual staple of Summer Road Trips. Each provides Galion area residents with an easy day trip idea that features something unique and different.
As always, we remind our readers that Galion itself has fun, interesting, and spooky things to do — we will continue to report on those through the month.
With this Fall Road Trip, you are invited to go back in time to a nineteenth-century Halloween experience.
Enjoy an evening of 1890s-style family fun at All Hallows’ Eve, with a retelling of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by the bonfire, pumpkin carving and strange characters roaming Ohio Village, located next to the Ohio History Center off of I 71 in Columbus.
Come revel in Victorian-era entertainment including fortune telling, crafts, games and more.
All Hallows Eve will be occurring on each Saturday in October beginning with October 8. The fun will include:
- A re-telling of the Washington Irving classic by a bonfire and included a pumpkin-lined path and an apparition of the Headless Horseman
- A 19th century masquerade party
- Hear from the fascinating characters who roam Ohio Village and ask them about their All Hallows’ Eve celebrations
- Explore the funeral parlor and learn about 19th century funeral practices
Registration is required, which can be accomplished here.
