The Bergen County Historical Society presents "All Hallows' Eve: Songs of Love, Death, and the Supernatural." Balladeers Ridley and Anne Enslow, performing on the fiddle and hammered dulcimer, will present a 60-minute outdoor concert at the Campbell-Christie House, an 18th century Jersey-Dutch sandstone house. The concert will trace the legends, beliefs and superstitions about Halloween beginning in the medieval times through the 18th century and beyond.
Bring your own chairs or blankets as seating will not be provided.
Afterwards, be sure to stop by the gift shop inside the Campbell-Christie House or take a stroll through the rest of the historic site grounds.
