The Dubois County Museum invites youngsters to come in Halloween costumes to participate in the museum’s Spooky Streets night at the museum on Thursday, October 19. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the evening concludes at 8:00 p.m. in an Open House type format.
Museum volunteers have transformed Main Street in the museum into a dim lite alleyway where costumed children can pass through (if they dare) and shop owners may poke out their heads as they try to guard their shops. Crafts and activities await in the log house area.
The cost of the evening is free. To offset the rising costs of the price of candy and treats, visitors are asked to make a donation to the museum. The first 100 children exiting the lobby will receive a treat bag of goodies.
There is no registration required.
