St. Charles County, MO – The St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department is scaring up family-friendly fun at two parks this Halloween season.
From 6 – 10:30 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 22, tales and stories from the 1800s are brought to life at Spirits of the Past at the Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park in Defiance. Walk through lantern-lit paths in the historic park, listen to murder ballads in the Old Peace Chapel and the eerie Legend of Sleepy Hollow by renowned story teller Anne Williams, and if you dare, visit Ms. Hattie, the conjure woman from New Orleans. This family-friendly event is a great alternative to traditional Halloween celebrations and is recommended for children 7-years of age and older. Tickets are limited and pre-registration is suggested. Admission is $6, if pre-registered or $10 at the door. To pre-register, visit www.stccparks.org or call the park at 636-798-2005.
