You may have toured the Fort a time or two, but you have never toured the Fort like this. Lanterns are set to light your way through an 18th-century fort and fur trading village that has been overrun by werewolves, witches, goblins and ghouls. Storytellers weave spooky folktales near bonfires and treats such as hot mulled cider, cookies and candy can be found throughout the site. Most stops are suitable for all ages, but a haunted house, demon walk and werewolf walk will give thrills and chills to adults and children alike.
Tickets will go on sale in August. Last admission at 8:30 both nights.
