Children are Invited to Trick-or-Treat on the Historic USS Yorktown

Mayci Rechner Oct 03, 2022

Yorktown Family-Friendly Halloween 2021

Instead of going door to door to collect candy, children are invited to trick-or-treat from plane to plane aboard the historic aircraft carrier USS Yorktown. The family-friendly Halloween event will return for its second year on Saturday, October 22 from 5-7 p.m.

Patriots Point encourages families to dress in their best Halloween costumes and visit candy stations across the ship’s Hangar Deck. Participants can also enter a drawing to win a Friends of the Fleet annual pass, which grants the pass holder and a guest unlimited museum admission for a year. The event is free to attend, but a ticket is required. A limited number of tickets are available on a first-come-first-serve basis HERE.

“There’s not another Halloween event in the state like this!” said Interim Executive Director Mac Burdette. “Trick-or-treating through a World War II aircraft carrier is an experience kids won’t forget.”



Also happening at the museum this fall, October 17 to 31 Bulldog Tours will offer a Halloween edition of the guided Captain’s Tour. The tour will give participants exclusive access to areas of the ship not accessible to the general public. Plus, guides will share some of the most bizarre events from USS Yorktown’s history and unexplained phenomena that still occur on the ship. The tour is offered daily for an additional $15 per person. To see the complete schedule and reserve a spot, visit patriotspoint.org.
