Enjoy Halloween Events At Our Local Museums
According to my trusty countdown clock, Halloween is just 18 days away as of today (October 12th.) Why do I have a countdown clock to Halloween? Well, to be honest, it's actually a countdown clock to the last day of camping season, which just happens to be October 31st. For that I am truly sad. Not for having the clock, for camping season ending. Just clarifying that fact, thank you.
Anyway, with 2020 throwing curve balls at us everyday with events and activities being cancelled left and right, I thought I'd look into what type of events are still on for the Halloween season as of right now at some of our local museums. Check the websites of these venues for any updates or cancellations.
