The May-Stringer Museum may be haunted all of the time, but it will be transformed this week into a hokey, spooky, fun place for the annual haunted house. The Covid pandemic caused the house itself to be closed last year with all activities taking place outdoors. This year, however, with improved air circulation and creative staging, the first floor of the historic building will be part of the tour. Two rooms never before seen in the haunted house event will be open. The maze in the side yard with scare zones is not for the faint of heart!
The GhostFest will be open over four nights and one full day on October 22 & 23, and October 29 from 7 pm to 11 pm. Saturday, October 30 will be an all-day event from 11 am -11 pm and will be family-oriented for a fun day of craft activities, games, vendors, and food. CDC type masks will be required to enter the house. Bring your own or purchase one at the door.
