The Halloween Season

October 29, 2007

We’re on the home stretch for the haunted houses, corn mazes and weekend-only festivals (like Grant’s Farm, which I have to check out next year because I’ve heard it’s fabulous). All that’s left are the preschool costume parades on the morning of the 31st, a few random after-school parties, and the actual trick-or-treating that evening … if your neighborhood didn’t find a Wednesday too inconvenient, that is, and reschedule Halloween to this past weekend. After all the amazing creativity of the lead-up events, I’m thinking pretty soon kids will find the door-to-door tromp anticlimactic. I was very, very tempted to take the ghoul to one final music-and-lights show (his term for free outdoor concerts, in case you haven’t read the About page). The very final Twilight Tuesday-esque concert is actually on a Wednesday over at the Missouri History Museum. The band is Dr. Zhivegas and the music starts at 5 p.m. (not 6:30 as usual for the series). If you don’t want to give up trick-or-treating, the museum’s also having a Tuesday night bash from 5 to 9 p.m. Its centerpiece is an outdoor showing of The Black Cauldron.
