Spending your spooky weekend with us in the Berkshires? There are many creepy-crawly things to do on the spookiest day of the year!

Spend your Halloween day on a haunted trolley ride for the Downstreet Art Thursday celebration in North Adams. Ride to all the galleries, Re-Wilderment exhibition opening and much more. Come evening, Downstreet Art Thursday presents, Ryder Cooley and friends in a creepy concert, calling out spirits!

Perhaps later, you may want to attend the reading of Edith Wharton’s “Kerfol” at her very own pet cemetery at The Mount. “Kerfol” is one of Edith Wharton’s most perplexing ghost stories. The Mount will open at 6 pm for light refreshments and the reading by Ariel Block and Dennis Krausnick, will begin at 6:30.

If you aren’t too scared after the reading, enjoy a 90 minute Ghost tour at 8:30 pm or a Witching Hour ghost tour at 10:30 pm, costumes are encouraged! So come creepy and enjoy a ghoul-ish Halloween at The Mount!

For those of you who aren’t arriving until Friday, the Great Barrington Historical Society is holding a Haunted Hayride Friday evening at 6:30 pm.

So pack your costumes, load up the brooms and come get spooky in the Berkshire and slumber at the 1896 House this creepy weekend!
