There will also be pumpkin carving demonstrations, pumpkin stacking, sidewalk chalk, and games and activities.
The Haunted Show at Cave Without a Name
Saturday, October 28, 7–10pm
This unique Halloween event offers “a wonderfully eerie evening in the Cave Throne Room. Just before Halloween, the cave will be haunted by the expert weaving of tale and song—both classical and jazz—such as Moonlight Sonata (played in total darkness), Theme from Young Frankenstein, A Nightmare before Christmas, Danse Macabre and similar songs plus the haunting melodies from Rahim Quazi’s CD, Ghost Hunting, which was on the ballot for a Grammy Award. Enjoy a family-friendly evening loaded with fun and surprises. Costumes welcome.”
