Halloween Night at the Museum, Will Rogers Memorial Museum
October 31, 6:00 pm–8:00 pm
Celebrate Halloween Night at the Museum on Tuesday, October 31, from 6 to 8 pm at the Will Rogers Memorial Museum. Trick-or-treating will be combined with an opportunity for children, parents, and grandparents to visit the museum. Area businesses and individuals will have tables throughout the museum galleries to share treats. There will be special activities for the children and something for everyone. Admission to this family-friendly event is free.
There will be a continuous showing of The Headless Horseman starring Will Rogers in the Museum Theatre. This silent film is a comedic version of the familiar story of Ichabod Crane. In the film, Crane (played by Will Rogers) is a Yankee schoolmaster competing for the hand of the daughter of a wealthy family. Another suitor, disguised as the headless horseman, lures Ichabod to a lonely bridge and frightens him away.
