Tricks and treats at the Manor

Pennsbury Manor will host their 10th Annual Tricks & Treats at the Manor on Sunday, October 27th from 1:00-4:00pm.

This program is created to provide children and their families with a safe and fun Halloween adventure.

Children can trick or treat to the historic buildings and learn a little about what life was like here at Pennsbury.

In recognition of the growing number of food allergies in children and adults, Pennsbury will again be participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project by offering non-food treats and games, in addition to candy.

Guests will also have the opportunity to preside over a witch trial!

In 1683, Pennsylvania colonist Margaret Mattson was accused of being a witch. William Penn presided over her trial, the only witch trial to ever take place in the state.

Hear testimony against Margaret and her witchcraft and help decide her fate as a member of the jury.

Visitors can also take pictures with the Manor’s life-size scarecrows. The newest addition to their scarecrow family is Bill, a creation based on their beloved Ox.

Help Hannah Penn maintain control of the colony in an epic cornhole tournament against William Penn Jr. and play other Halloween-themed games.

In addition to children’s games, families can watch as interpreters preform demonstrations such as cider-making, beer brewing, blacksmithing, woodworking and other 17th century trades.
