Brick Store Museum
The Brick Store Museum will once again make spirits come alive for one afternoon for its All Souls’ Walk! The popular Halloween event is now in its 16th year. Continuous tours will explore Hope Cemetery every 20 minutes, and will begin at 12:00pm, with the last tour departing at 3:00pm. Tickets are $10 per person, $30 per family (max).
The narrated historical walks begin at the Brick Store Museum at 117 Main Street, Kennebunk, and cover a half-mile loop through Kennebunk’s Hope Cemetery, lasting approximately one hour. Costumed interpreters portray the historical figures, and share their stories of love, loss, and fate. Not too spooky, it’s a perfect activity for the whole family. Participants visit more than a dozen gravesites and learn local history through the fascinating and often tragic tales of residents from bygone eras. Tours conclude back at the Museum, where guests are invited to enjoy cider and treats while viewing the museum’s fall exhibitions, including the opening of “Art in Fashion.” The event is supported by Port & Shore Realty and the Morton Kelly Charitable Trust. The Museum especially thanks Friends of Hope Cemetery and Woods for once again hosting the All Souls’ Walk this year.
Tickets can also be purchased on the day of the event. No advance reservations are required, except for large groups. The event occurs rain or shine, since a modified indoor version of the program (through collections storage areas) will be presented in the event of inclement weather.
