On Nov. 3 from 7 to 10 p.m., Historic Cold Spring Village will be holding its first annual spooktacular fundraising event, “Ghoul Spring Village.” If you dare, please join us as we pierce the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead. Venture to hear the true stories behind some of New Jersey’s infamous legends as you are guided through the darkness by lantern light. What entities will you encounter? And what will you bring back home with you? Free parking, live music by Nae Breeks, vendors and tasty treats! Trinka Hakes Noble will be signing her children’s book “The Legend of the Jersey Devil” at the Country Store. Advanced ticket sales only! Reserve your tickets at www.hcsv.org by clicking the “Book Now” button!
“The Village is the perfect venue for this type of event! We wanted to think outside the box and offer the community something different to enjoy while still maintaining the Village’s mission. Folks may walk away from this experience having learned something new about south Jersey’s fantastic folklore!” states Sandy Nickel, Marketing & Advertising Director.
Historic Cold Spring Village is a nonprofit, open-air living history museum that portrays the daily life of a rural South Jersey community of the Early American period. It features 27 restored historic structures on a 30-acre site. Tuesday through Sunday, from late June to early September, historically clothed interpreters and artisans preserve the trades, crafts and heritage of “the age of homespun.” Fun and educational activities for children are featured Tuesday through Sunday, with special events every weekend through the summer season.
The Village is located on Route 9, three miles north of Victorian Cape May and a mile and a half west of the southern terminus of the Garden State Parkway. Admission during the season is $14 for adults and $12 for children ages 3 to 12. Children under 3 are admitted free. Unlimited free admission is available with Village membership. The Village Nature Trail at Bradner’s Run is open to the public for free self-guided tours. Be sure to visit the Country Store, Bakery, Ice Cream Parlor, History to Scale, Cold Spring Brewery and Cold Spring Grange Restaurant.
