Celebrate All Hallows Eve at Naper Settlement

NAPERVILLE, IL--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  A horde of diabolical figures from the 19th century to the present will leap from the pages of books and from the tabloid headlines of long ago during All Hallows Eve: Village of Fear, to be held from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 22-23.

"This year, the fright factor has definitely been increased," said Donna Sack, Naper Settlement's Director of Visitor Services. "Our buildings and grounds are haunted, including new scenarios and acts designed to make you think about what is real, what isn't and what is in-between."

New this year is the Knotty Bits Sideshow, presenting stunts of daring and skill with a healthy dose of humor and horror. Delve into the chilling imagination of Edgar Allan Poe and enjoy a thrilling dance presentation of "Thriller" by The School of Performing Arts Dance Ensemble, 43 dancers between the ages of 8-18. Lighting up the night are the Red Mink Fire Dancers who flirt with danger at every performance. Even Beetlejuice arrives from the Neitherworld. All-new experiences are waiting in the haunted mansion, in the Paw Paw Post Office, where visitors will have a devil of a time, and in the Halfway House, where child's play is no laughing matter. See spectacle and specters during this unique Naperville Halloween event located throughout a 12-acre haunted village.

Tickets are $15, $2 off advance tickets are available at Naper Settlement, 523 S. Webster St., and Naperville retailers including Anderson's Bookshop, Canterbury Shoppe, Country Curtains, Just Ducky and Oswald's Pharmacy. Not recommended for young children or those who scare easily. Visit

History comes to life at Naper Settlement, an outdoor museum village, located in downtown Naperville at 523 S. Webster St. Accredited by the American Association of Museums, Naper Settlement has 30 historic structures ranging from a rustic log cabin to an elegant Victorian mansion, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
