Earlier in the week we talked about 5 great things you can do around town (in one case across county lines) for the Halloween week. Well, we should have made it 9 since these four events are pretty awesome.
First off you have The National Corvette Museum’s Monster Mash! Saturday, from 1 to 3pm we are offering a free event with loads of activities. There will be a Trunk-or-Treat a display of collector cars, like a Shelby Cobra and Lamborghini! You can also enjoy free arts and crafts activities (make a mask, ghost pop and spider basket), decorate cookies at the IGA cookie station. Also, Carnival games (25 cents a ticket) with prizes as well as a Face, hair and nail painting for $1.00 each. Kids’ Costume Contest will take place at 2pm with prizes. They will award prizes for ages 0-2 years, 3-5 years, 6-8 years, 9-12 years and “Best of Show”. Pumpkin painting for $3.00, DJ Tim Livingston will also be spinning your favorite Halloween tunes.
Then of course the 5th annual Mattress Chuck at Trent Bedding:
Just across the county line in Simpson County on Bowling Green Road is The Octagon Hall. Not only is this place on Kentucky’s Civil War Trail it’s also been featured on Travel Channel as one of America’s Most Terrifying places. Check out their website at www.octagonhall.com for tours and for further information, you can call (270) 586-9343. The Museum is open Wednesday – Saturday, 8am-11:30am and 1pm – 3:30pm. “Haunted” tours are held every weekend however, the Hall is closed on all major holidays except Halloween. The special event info is on the flier above:
Lastly, on Halloween Night, Fountain Square will have their “Scare on The Square event. Starting at 4:30pm the kids can come to Fountain Square and trick-or-treat to all the local businesses in a safe and friendly environment. Also, live music by Culture of Creatures in front of “The Capitol.” At 5:30 there will also be an auction of the Squirrels so many people searched for during “Squirrels on The Square.” Hope to see you out this weekend!
