ALEXANDRIA, va – There is nothing more fun as a kid on Halloween than admiring the haul of candy you brought home after going door to door. This year kids can trick-or-treat at one of the most famous houses in America: George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate.

Celebrate Halloween the 18th century way on Oct. 28 from 2 to 6 p.m. Kids are welcome to wear their costumes.  Peter Gardiner will entertain with 18th century magic. Watch one of George Washington’s favorite forms of entertainment, a Punch & Judy Puppet Show. Learn dances from his time as well.

Mount Vernon will have special treat bags handy for kids to collect M&M’s, Starburst, and much more. Then they can participate in a Costume Parade and meet Gen. Washington and Martha.

To commemorate this unforgettable event, families are invited to take selfies in front of the mansion on the Bowling Green.
