This October, Haldimand County Museum & Archives will be hosting a number of ‘spooky’ events – from live musical performances to ghostly walking tours. All programs will be held at the new Cayuga Library & Heritage Centre.
October 15 – Culture Club – Music by Canadian folk band ‘The Treeline’ – 6:30 to 8pm
Canadian folk band ‘The Treeline’ will treat attendees to a lively performance full of harmonies and story-driven songs with a variety of instruments. Music is reflective of the people, landscape and changing seasons of our country. Pre-registration is required for this program; the cost is $5/person. Code: 10231. Light refreshments will be served.
October 22 – Ghostling Walking Tour of Cayuga – 6 to 8pm
Take a guided stroll through the historic village of Cayuga and explore its most ghostly haunts. Stories of murder, mayhem and ghost sightings will be part of this evening – especially surrounding the Cayuga Courthouse which was the site of several hangings. The program will be held rain or shine (if inclement weather occurs, the talk will take place at the Heritage Centre). Pre-registration is required for this program; the cost is $10/person. Code: 8377. Light refreshments will be served.
October 29 – Escape the Museum – 1 to 3pm
Do you have what it takes to escape from the museum? An unsolved historical murder, missing artifacts, and a dastardly archeologist set the stage for this interactive program. Participants will have one hour to uncover the evidence of the crime and escape the museum before the suspect returns. Put together a team or come on your own and try to solve the mystery! Pre-registration is required for this program; the cost is $5/person. Code: 10386. Light refreshments will be served.
October 30 – Historically Speaking Halloween – 1 to 3pm
Join in on the museum’s annual “spooky” Halloween celebration. Fresh scones, tea, raspberry jam and other sweet treats will be served followed by a talk on some of the most interesting haunted places in Haldimand County and the surrounding area. Pre-registration is required for this program; the cost is $10/person. Code: 10012.
