Ashwood Waldorf Hosts All Hallows Eve Walk at Merryspring Nature Center

By Ashwood Waldorf School | Oct 15, 2014

Merryspring Nature Center. Conway Rd., Camden, ME — A festive, family event, Ashwood's All Hallows' Eve is an imaginative, protected alternative to traditional trick-or-treat activities. For one magical evening, Merryspring’s woodland is transformed into a place of enchantment. Costumed children take a guided walk through the woods, lit only by friendly jack-o-lanterns, viewing scenes from fairy and folk tales. Many children (and their parents) return year after year to enjoy this special night.

Everyone is encouraged to come in costume, but no scary masks or costumes, please, for the enjoyment of the youngest children. To engage older children ages nine to fourteen, scary stories will be told around a campfire in the woods.

When the path opens, the younger children and their parents are invited to wind their way quietly along through the forest, catching glimpses of creature and character vignettes. To preserve the enchanted mood of the event, we kindly ask that there be no flash photography, flashlights, or cell phones. Thank you!

All are welcome. Parking for the event is provided in Merryspring Center’s large meadows past the buildings and off the main loop. Families are also encouraged to carpool.
