Legends & Lanterns: A "Spirited" Journey Through Halloween History

This Halloween, St. Charles will become a ghost town…literally! Historic Main Street will be invaded by a plethora of playful paranormal poltergeists from parts unknown. These notorious and infamous witches, villains, and spirits from lore and legend will unleash the magic of their enchanted lanterns in order to travel from regions beyond 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.

Finding its inspiration from the past, Legends & Lanterns offers the vintage charm of Halloween in the 1910s-1930s, to the historical rituals and customs brought to the holiday by the Druids and Victorians, to the ethereal atmosphere depicted in American ghost stories and Brothers Grimm fairy tales.

As you explore every mysterious nook and cranny of Main Street, you'll unearth various activities that will bring to "life" the backstories and origins of this beloved holiday, All Hallow's Eve. It's a little bit silly. It's a little bit macabre. But it's all fun. And it's headed this way! Join us on October 10-11, 17-18, and 23-25.
