Halloween Fun was had by all at the museum on Saturday. This year’s Halloween event at the museum was a great success. We saw over 500 visitors and made over $700. The site was packed with kids and whole families wearing terrific costumes. The wieners and marshmallows were roasting while trolls and witch’s blood (coffee and hot coco) were keeping cold hands warm. The museum's volunteer bakers filled the table with sweet treats. The historic houses were covered in cob webs and scary decorations. Kids had a great time at the activity table. The scary maze survived the wind and scared many who were brave enough to go through it. The Spooky Schoolhouse gave everyone the chills. There were also other activities all around the site that kept the little ones busy.
We would like to thank Pemberton Valley Supermarket for sponsoring this event.
Brenda McLeod was our emcee for the costume and jack-o-lantern contests and kept everyone in line with her school bell. Judy McNolty and Fran Cuthbert assisted with judging. We appreciate all the effort everyone put into their costumes and jack-o-lanterns.
Grace Chadsey and Carmen Praine were our Scary Shopkeepers and helped register everyone for the contests. Monique and Rolande Midgley helped keep the food table organized and made alot of hot coco. Betty Mercer brought her world famous cookies and cupcakes. Mae Catacutan and Ally and Holly helped with set up and counting all the scary costumes that walked through the gate.
Museum staff Katilyn Pierre, Nick Dan and Savannah McKinney-Lincks helped to make the event run smoothly and were a great help with clean up at the end of the day.
Thank you to everyone who came and for your enthusiasm for this event. We will definitely add a "Family" category to the contests for next year.
