Video: Halloween Legends and Lore

View highlights of Old World Wisconsin's Halloween Legends and Lore events in this YouTube video.

Explore the Crossroads Village after dark at this always spooky, sometimes scary, family-friendly Halloween event.

Tonight the veil is thin between this world and the next.  Troves of supernatural tales brought to Wisconsin over the generations come to life as you venture into the dark of the woods, encounter traveling performers around their fire, hear eerie tales performed by lantern light and attempt a haunted maze under the light of the moon.

If you dare, stay for Wendigo's Bonfire at 8:30 and then join our Undertaker for The Night Parade - when the church bell tolls, summoning the spirits back tot he other side...

Don't Miss:  The Emporium of Oddities! The Tale of St. Dunstan and the Devil!  The Hodag Hay Maze for the Little Goblins or the Hern the Hunter Maze for those made of stronger stuff!  The Legend of Jack O'Kent!  The Nachtkrapp or Night Raven! and Many More....
