James Monroe’s Highland to host Halloween at Highland on October 28


CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — James Monroe's Highland, in partnership with the Albemarle County Fair, will host Halloween at Highland, an afternoon and evening of fall fun, on Sunday, October 28, from 1:00 to 8:00 p.m. Admission to the event includes hayrides through the Highland pastures, walks through the corn maze, and entry in the children’s Halloween costume contest. Food, drink, pumpkins, and face painting will be available for purchase. All proceeds will support agricultural programming and the Albemarle County Fair at Highland.

“Halloween at Highland is sure to entertain children and grownups alike,” said Highland executive director, Sara Bon-Harper. "I love the idea that this event is only ‘slightly’ spooky—with plenty of classic fall activities."

 

Admission is $5 per participant. Children under 6 years old are admitted FREE. Tickets can be purchased in advance at https://highland.org/event/halloween-at-highland/.
