About the event:
Trick-or-treat safely outdoors from house to historic house with Jack-o’-lanterns lighting the way in Portsmouth’s oldest waterfront neighborhood. Meet wayward pirates and a mysterious fortune-teller, listen to ghostly tales, construct a giant spider web, dance to spooky musical tunes, and play games for prizes. Additionally, enjoy frighteningly fun shopping at Pickwick’s At the Banke, the Museum store. Ghosts on the Banke is a family-friendly event designed to be spooky, not scary.
Members (ages 1+): $4 or free depending on membership level
Nonmembers (ages 1+): $8
Children under: free
