South Street Seaport Museum
Halloween at the Seaport
With FREE Pumpkin Painting
October 30 – 31, 2021
South Street Seaport Museum participates in Halloween at the Seaport with FREE pumpkin painting at Pier 16, 12pm-4pm, October 30-31, 2021. Kids can unleash their creativity and have fun painting delightful decorative pumpkins that have been delivered from upstate farms by sail freight—just like in the old days!—by Schooner Apollonia. Guests can also participate in the Museum’s Black Cat Scavenger Hunt on Wavertree and Ambrose as well as other Halloween fun throughout Seaport Museum Open Days. For more information and to register, visit seaportmuseum.org/Pumpkin-Painting.
Seaport Museum Open Days include self-guided free tours of the 1885 tall ship Wavertree and scheduled tours of the 1908 lightship Ambrose, as well as an outdoor exhibition on Pier 16, on both Saturday and Sunday. Additionally, on Saturday, Bowne & Co. will present demonstrations of the 19th century printing process with a variety of presses and equipment from the Museum’s Printing History Collection outdoors on the steps of 209-211 Water Street. Rides on 1930 tugboat W. O. Decker are also available for purchase on both days. For details and tickets, visit seaportmuseum.org/visitwavertree.
Other Halloween at the Seaport festivities include the Hester Street Fair, Fulton Stall Market, Haunted Halloween Books, a Halloween block party, and trick-or-treating, with more information on the neighborhood events at theseaport.nyc/events/halloween-at-the-seaport/.
