A Spooktacular, Physically Distanced Event!
WOODSTOCK, VERMONT… Billings Farm & Museum will host A Family Halloween on Sunday, October 25, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Children in costume receive free admission when accompanied by a ticketed adult.
Children are invited to march in a costume parade. Parades will be held at 11:30 & 1:30 p.m., and all children will receive a ribbon. Costumed children can enter to win a drawing for a $10 gift certificate to the Museum Shop. Drawings will be held following each costume parade. Families can also enjoy a hayride around the farm, offered from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Activities for all ages include pumpkin bowling, making spider web necklaces, plus family-friendly Halloween story readings. Families can venture through the “not too spooky” Farm Life Exhibits while searching for the hidden pumpkins. Children are invited to trick-or-treat safely from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. at candy stations located around the farm.
Don’t fear the annual pumpkin carving contest! Guests vote for their favorite in the ‘spooktastic” display of decorated pumpkins created by our staff! See the roasted pumpkin seed display and take home the Billings Farm recipe.
