At Halloween on the Farm, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., attendees made their way across the sprawling 44-acre farm where they could get a spooky farmhouse experience at the historic Adriance Farmhouse or enjoy a wholesome photo-op among gourds at the patch.

The event also featured a performance from Halloween’s Blessing Angel, presented by The Edward Morgan Ballet, for the first time on the farm. And DJ Malik Work provided the tunes for the haunted dance party. Attendees had the opportunity to participate in some guided Monster Mash dancing after hopping off a festive hayride decorated for Halloween.

This year’s Amazing Maize Maze was landscaped into the shape of a 1954 tractor that was donated to the farm by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Some families took on the challenge of making their way through the sprawling 3-acre cornfield puzzle during the Oct. 29 event.
