The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum, housed in the historic Allan Herschell Company Factory building at 180 Thompson St., North Tonawanda, hosts its "Halloween Spooktacular" from 5:30m to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19.
This family-friendly event is appropriate for even the youngest ghosts and goblins. Children and their parents can enjoy Halloween games, crafts and treats within the safety and comfort of the museum. Join in for a fun-filled night of "frog bowling," "pin the nose on the pumpkin," "witch hat hula hoop toss" and more hilarious Halloween games. Children will enjoy making crafts such as paper pumpkins, tissue ghosts and scary spiders. The museum's talented wood carvers will be on hand to demonstrate carving techniques. The finished products, along with other great items for kids and adults, will be raffled off at the end of the evening. And Charlie and Checkers will present a special comedy magic show.
The cost for this frighteningly fun event is $8 for children ages 2 to 12 and $2 for adults (sorry, no coupons or passes accepted). Children must be accompanied by an adult. Admission includes all activities, refreshments, a treat bag for children, and a ride on the carrousel. For more information, call the museum at 716-693-1885.
