Halloween Night at the Museum, Will Rogers Memorial Museum
October 31, 6:00 pm–8:00 pm
Halloween Night at the Museum combines trick-or-treating with an opportunity for children, parents, and grandparents to visit the Will Rogers Memorial Museum. On Halloween night, Wednesday, October 31, from 6 to 8 pm, area businesses and individuals will be sharing treats at locations throughout the museum galleries. This event is open to all ages and admission is free.
The family-friendly atmosphere draws families to a safe place for the holiday and has brought many to the museum for the first time. This year a costume contest has been added.
There will be a continuous showing in the Museum Theatre of The Headless Horseman starring Will Rogers. This silent film is a comedic adaptation of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The film is the familiar story of Ichabod Crane (played by Will Rogers), 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.
