Instead of going door-to-door to collect candy, children are invited to trick-or-treat from plane-to-plane aboard the historic aircraft carrier USS Yorktown at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum. The family-friendly Halloween event will return for its second year on Saturday, October 22nd from 5 pm to 7 pm.
Patriots Point encourages families to dress in their best Halloween costumes and visit candy stations across the ship’s Hangar Deck. Participants can also enter a drawing to win a Friends of the Fleet annual pass, which grants the pass holder and a guest unlimited museum admission for a year. The event is free to attend, but a ticket is required. A limited number of tickets are available on a first-come-first-serve basis here.
“There’s not another Halloween event in the state like this,” said Interim Executive Director Mac Burdette. “Trick-or-treating through a World War II aircraft carrier is an experience kids won’t forget.”
Also happening at the museum this fall, Bulldog Tours will offer a Halloween edition of the guided Captain’s Tour from October 17th to 31st. The tour will give participants exclusive access to areas of the ship not accessible to the general public. Plus, guides will share some of the most bizarre events from USS Yorktown’s history and unexplained phenomena that still occur on the ship. The tour is offered daily for an additional $15 per person.
