(Dearborn, Michigan – Oct. 3, 2017) – Experience a new path lit by more than 1,000 hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns and meet costumed characters including the Mad Hatter and March Hare who will be having a tea party with the Queen of Hearts, the Bride of Frankenstein, Madam Zaza and more during Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village, Oct. 13-15, 19-22 and 26-29.

The crowd pleasing Top Hat Sideshow returns this year with their carnival vaudeville act that brings the spirit and thrills of the traveling sideshows and carnivals of the early 1900s to life. Guests will also be treated to more swashbuckling action, live singing and dancing from Hallowe’en favorites the Pirates of the Suwanee, and musical performances from the Transylvanian Trio and the Potion Sisters.

New this year, guests can follow the yellow brick road through The Henry Ford’s unique interpretation of Kansas, Oz, and the haunted forest. The beloved characters from Frank Baum’s classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz come to life, including, Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman, Cowardly Lion, Glinda the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch. 

Near the evening’s end, guests will encounter a near narrow escape from the bony grip of the Grim Reaper and the Headless Horseman.
