New Hampshire’s Haunted Seaport

Visitors to New Hampshire’s Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth can experience a haunted seaport on Friday and Saturday, October 29 and 30, during the museum’s famous Halloween celebration called Ghosts On The Banke.

Brave attendees will meet long-dead sea captains, 17th century shopkeepers and wayward pirates, all of whom will be haunting the streets of Portsmouth’s oldest neighborhood as they trick-or-treat safely from house to historic house. The event will feature jack-o-lantern-lit laneways, wandering werewolves, ghostly graveyards, a haunted hemlock grove, an old witch’s house and an outdoor Halloween movie.

The events are from 6 to 8 p.m., and tickets are $6 per person.
