MT. MORRIS TWP. — This Halloween season, Crossroads Village is once again providing area families with a frightfully fun destination for trick-or-treating.

Halloween Ghosts & Goodies, Crossroads’ annual autumn tradition, kicked off with a spectacular debut on Oct. 2 and will continue Oct. 8-10, 15-17, 22-24 and 27-31. Throughout the month, visitors will find treats and tricks, cider and donuts and a ton of Halloween fun at the historical village attraction, which is located on 6140 N. Bray Road in Mt. Morris Township.

In addition to visiting 20 treat stops throughout the village, guests can ride the Huckleberry Ghost Train Express or catch a magic show at the Colwell Opera House. Along the way, families can also interact with costumed reenactors and check out a variety of colorful displays and themed sections, such as the Haunted Forest, Pirate’s Cove, the Dragon’s Lair and a straw bale maze populated by characters from the “Despicable Me” franchise.

Tickets for Halloween Ghosts & Goodies are $15 for adults and children 13 months or older and $24 for a combined train ride and village admission. Children 12 months and under can enter for free. Advance tickets can be purchased online or at the gate and are highly recommended for the Huckleberry Railroad train rides, which tend to sell out quickly.

Drive Through Only Nights in the village will also be held on Oct. 11, 18 and 25 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The cost to enter is $20 per vehicle, and each person will receive a complimentary Ghost & Goodies treat bag. Ticket sales end at 8:30 p.m.
