The Halloween Weekend in Williamsburg began the night before these photos, when Nana made us some very delicious and perfectly spicy, homemade veggie chili. The following morning (pictured above), she had her great granddoghter try out treat samples at the farmer's market in Colonial Williamsburg - Jojo ended up selecting the Pumpkin Pie flavored cookies over the peanut butter and chicken flavors! Our Nana sure does spoil us and makes sure we don't go hungry.
Obligatory Peanut Shop pit stop - we only left with 6 cans of peanuts and 1 peanut butter though....
Just before nightfall, we ate at Shield's Tavern along with some other very hungry travelers. We dined on traditional 1800's colonial recipes by candlelight and enjoyed some live violin music.
The night ended with an thrilling live theater performance where audience interaction with the show was encouraged as was wearing of masks to protect one's identity. We walked through the Capitol building with Mad King George III, the ghost of his daughter and other lost souls! Pete ended up getting cornered by giant and truly crazy King GIII, questioned by a deranged drunkard, and scolded by a "shadow" for taking photos inside which was forbidden! I mostly hid, behind him and Nan! Outside the capitol, they had drink and snack bars, live musicians of the era and performers adding to the spooks and feels. All in all, it was a great Halloween Williamsburg night.
Stay posted about our trip with Nan to Yorktown's newest museum!
