This Halloween we celebrate Irish Celtic origins with a captivating, intercultural festival of shadow and light. Families can celebrate the Autumn Moon with a shadow puppet show from our friends at Chinese Theatre Works, enjoy a performance and lesson from Darrah Carr Dance, make lanterns and carve turnips (the original jack o’lanterns), play traditional Irish Halloween games, dance in our flashlight party, and much more.

“At this Irish Halloween celebration, kids can learn about the spooky traditions indigenous to the Emerald Isle”
