The Buffalo-Niagara Heritage Village, located at 3755 Tonawanda Creek Rd. in Amherst, will be hosting their annual Halloween Trick-or-Treat in October, but there’s also some fun for adults at the Village this season.
The Halloween Trick-or-Treat will be held Friday and Saturday, October 21-22. This safe trick-or-treating event is for kids ages 3-12 and takes place outdoors around the Village’s buildings. Registration is strongly recommended, as times often sell out – Friday times are every 15 minutes from 5-7:30 p.m. and Saturday times are every 15 minutes from 4-7:30 p.m. Cost is $8 for kids and $5 for adults.
BNHV will host six Victorian Séances this season: Friday, September 30 (8-10 p.m.); Friday, October 14 (8-10 p.m.); Friday, October 21 (10 p.m.-midnight); Saturday, October 15 (10 p.m.-midnight); Friday, October 28 (8-10 p.m.); and Friday, November 4 (8-10 p.m.). Learn about Spiritualism, Victorian mourning culture, and how death impacted the area in the 19th century in a program designed for BNHV by Buffalo History Tours’ Joel Dombrowski. Registration is required – two types of séances are being offered, and tickets start at $30 for members and $35 for non-members.
