The High Desert Museum is getting into the Halloween spirit Saturday night with a "Tales of Hallows Eve" party.

 

Dana Whitelaw, Vice President of Programs with the museum says there will be period -dressed characters reading 19th Century Halloween stories and lots of activities for kids and adults:  "Along with making a jack o'lantern puppet, they're going to learn about the history of the jack o'lantern, a great story called "Stingy Jack" that is part of the origin of that. And we're going to learn about shadow puppets and how to make them."

 

Whitelaw says there will be lots of urban myths discussed that have some historically accurate elements to them. There will be close up visits with some "spooky" animals like owls, bats and ravens.

 

The party is Saturday night from s6-8 p.m., and it costs $2 for non-members and members are free.
