A Journey Through Halloween History

I was a little worried we weren’t going to make it to Legends and Lanterns this year…we had to wait until the final weekend to fit it into our schedule, and the weather forecast for Saturday wasn’t exactly promising. But the rain held off long enough for our visit, and, as always, it was fun!

The characters are always the main attraction. We saw some old favorites, and a few new faces as well.

Also new this year was the addition of some do-it-yourself passport stamps for some of the characters. I really loved this activity…the lovely embossed stamps are such a fun, tactile inclusion to the passport, and they’re really beautiful!

It’s always fun to catch a performance by the Angry Villagers!

I am also always captivated by how charming and lovely historic St. Charles is, especially in the fall! The decorations are top notch, and the glorious fall colors are outstanding!

Scarecrow Glen is another favorite stop. At this point, they’ve run rather far afield of the concept of scarecrows, but I don’t care…I just love seeing all of the creative displays! The homage to Jack Frost was definitely my favorite…I’m already looking forward to Christmas Traditions!

I’m glad the weather was clear long enough for our visit!
