Come with your little ones to a riveting performance with storyteller LuAnn Adams to begin your Halloween weekend. This multicultural performance includes spooky but not-too-scary folktales from around the world featuring ghosts, witches, goblins, and pumpkins. This show offers plenty of audience participation with LuAnn bringing the folktales to life through the use of puppets and sound. The performance is followed by a special brew (hot cider) and other ghostly treats (cookies) served in the Summer Dining Room. Come in costume! Prizes given to all! Ages 3-8.
