    Check them out below--and get those costumes ready!

    Spooky Events

    You may have been to historic sites in Norwalk before, but you’ve never seen them like this! The suggestions below are for those of us who love to be scared--and are preferably over 8 years old. Gather a group of friends for a super fun night of Halloween fun.

    COST: $13 Adult (before 10/22)

    Haven’t you always wanted to meet all of Norwalk’s famous ghosts? Why, of course you have. Join other Norwalk residents and visitors on a lantern tour that will put a chill down your spine and kick off the holiday. BYO flashlight, and buy tickets ASAP.
