Trick or Treat at Cemetery Lane

Cemetery Alley offers 13 themed stops suitable for the whole family located in a closed “neighborhood” of the Heritage Square Museum. Children of all ages can trick or treat in the Victorian homes, and a portion of the proceeds are donated to preservation efforts at the Heritage Square Museum. Although there is no jump scare, they say the event is less scary during the day and as the night progresses it gets a little scarier.
