Ghost Stories, S'mores And Bonfire - 18:30 to 21:00

Ghost Tales - Bonfire - S'Mores

Ghost Stories location change:
Event will be held at Old Roberts Schoolhouse.

Park in the same location and at the opposite side of the lot is our 1850's one room schoolhouse. We'll still have the bonfire, s'mores and smiles, just a different location.

We tried over the past 3 days to make the "beach" area work but it is still not ready to host events. So we decided it best to have it outside next to Old Roberts School.

Roast marshmallows to golden gooey perfection and place between the chocolate and graham crackers all while listening to the storyteller by the stream in the woods.

As a bonus to Friday evenings "Ghost Tales" we will be screening a movie that was fully filmed in the McKaig park last year on a 120" screen out in the woods.

"Kill or be killed"    Is an action thriller about a man who wakes up tied to a tree and finds himself thrust into a deadly game of survival.   
Rated about a PG 13 for simulated violence and some language.
