Activities run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the palace grounds, and costumes are encouraged. The event is designed for kids ages 12 and under.
While taking a tour, you might encounter, according to a press release, the Headless Horseman as he searches for Ichabod Crane, the ghost of a soldier lost in battle, and a witch brewing up a savory concoction or spell. A marionette show will feature some "strange and unusual characters" too.
To follow safety guidelines, reserved tickets for admittance are offered in time slots to maintain the state's Phase 3 guidelines for capacity, according to the release. Tickets are $4 for youth ages 13 to 18, and $10 for adults. It's free to kids, ages 12 and under, who attend in costume.
