Fort Hays State University’s Sternberg Museum of Natural History will host two Halloween events on Sunday, Oct. 31.
Halloween Spooktackular will take place at the museum from 3 to 5 p.m. for pre-kindergarten through grade 6 children. Kids in their Halloween costumes may come to the Sternberg Museum for a safe start to trick-or-treating.
Eagle Community Television will be on location interviewing trick-or-treaters and will rebroadcast the interviews on Eagle Cable Channel 14.
Children will get a chance to participate in “Spooky stations” in the museum dome, receive a free toothbrush from Lifetime Dental Care and a free flashlight and candy from Eagle Communications. Admission is free.
A Night at the Haunted Museum will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. for children from grade 7 and up and adults. For a hair-raising, spine-tingling, blood-curdling good time, individuals can roam through a darkened museum filled with the ghosts of ancient sea monsters and dinosaurs with live snakes and hissing cockroaches.
The haunted museum is sponsored by The Black Student Union, Hispanic American Leadership Organization, the FHSU Volleyball team and Delta Zeta. Admission is $5 per person.
