Not far from Williamsburg lies The Great Dismal Swamp. The Dismal Swamp has been a place of mystery and curiosity, and its awe-inspiring eeriness makes it a perfect backdrop for Halloween. Stories of spirits and those forgotten have been told by American Indians, enslaved persons, and poetic visitors to the swamp. It is the perfect season to journey into this gothic landscape. Join the Waterman Family as they read poetry inspired by the swamp and play songs and tunes that celebrate the spirit of this holiday.
