“Haunted Hugh Moore Park” Debuts October 24
The City of Easton and the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor are hosting a new Halloween event at Hugh Moore Park in late October. “Haunted Hugh Moore Park,” featuring a ghostly canal boat ride, traditional Halloween activities, and a ghost walk based on a local historical event, debuts on October 24, 25, 30 and 31 from 6:00 to 9 p.m.
Passengers will take a canal boat ride that introduces the ghosts that haunt the Lehigh Canal. After the boat ride, passengers will take a ghost walk from the National Canal Museum to the locktender’s house next to the Chain Dam.
Haunted Hugh Moore Park features professional storyteller, Judy England-McCarthy, to recall the origin of Halloween and many of its traditions around a bonfire. Judy’s story will be followed by a kids’ pumpkin hunt, pumpkin painting, a hay bale maze, and caramel apple making. Refreshments will be served outside the National Canal Museum.
Participation is by reservation only; each night is limited to 80 adults and children. Participants must arrive in the park by 6 p.m. and be aboard the Josiah White II canal boat at 6:15 p.m. Activities begin when the boat sets sail at 6:30 p.m. Activities will conclude at 9 p.m. The cost of the event is $12 for adults and $9 for children. This event is appropriate for children ages 7 and up.
Reservations for “Haunted Hugh Moore Park” are on a first-come, first-served basis. Call Loretta Susen at 610-923-3548 x221 with your preferred date and number of adults and children.
