It’s mid-September and that means one thing – you need to start making your plans for Halloween and Christmas.
And this Halloween it will be the adults – not the kids – who’ll take over the Miriam P. Brenner Children’s Museum in Downtown Greensboro.
The museum, of course, usually caters to youngsters, but not on this one day in October. In late October the focus will be on the people who pay all the bills for those kids.
Adult Halloween at the museum will have several free activities, including tombstone cornhole, Halloween-themed trivia, tarot card readings, a chance to pop balloons for a prize, and other activities.
In addition, Greensboro retailer, Reconsidered Goods, is partnering with the museum to offer “an eerie photo booth and craft station.”
Museum staff are asking area adults to put on their best costumes, get their friends together and come out and celebrate from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19 at the “adult only” event. That means those who are 21 and up.
There will also be other “spooky activities,” lots of music, a chance to win prizes, and local food and drink vendors.
Little Brother Brewing will be selling beer and wine, as well as “ghastly green brew.”
Korean corn dogs from the Astro Dogs food truck will also be on sale, along with Cuban delicacies by Havana Flavor.
There will be a $10 cover charge for the party, and early registration is encouraged. An ID will be required to enter the event at 220 N. Church St. in downtown Greensboro. So if you’re a 12 year old trying to come out and party with your parents that night – well, you can forget about it.
