Recurring event see all

October 29 @ 2:00 pm 8:00 pm

The Haunted Hamlet

On Saturday, October 29th Essex, NY will transform into The Haunted Hamlet. The fun begins at 2pm with jack-o-lantern carving, a kid-friendly scavenger-hunt at 3pm, and a “no scare” tour of our Haunted Town Hall at 4pm. “Full scare” tours for older kids and adults run from 5pm – 8pm. When you’ve had your fill of thrills, join us on Main Street! The block in front of Town Hall will be closed to automobiles for music, dancing, hot cider, popcorn, s’mores around the campfire, and more!

But that’s not all! The Haunted Town Hall reopens from 4-8pm on Monday, October 31st, and trick-or-treating kicks off on Main Street at 5pm.
