Trick-or-treat safely outdoors from house to historic house with Jack-o'-lanterns lighting the way of Portsmouth's oldest waterfront neighborhood. Meet long-dead sea captains, wayward pirates, and a mysterious fortune-teller. Listen to ghostly tales, spooky plays, and interactive improvisation bringing history back to life. Additionally, enjoy frighteningly fun shopping at Pickwick's At the Banke, the Museum store.
