Halloween To Do

En el dia de los muertos

What to do for Halloween this year. Well we don’t have anything scary going on at the inn, but we do have a cozy place for you to lay your head after heading one or a few great events. Whether you like to be scared, you just want a good story or you just want to enjoy the season, we can assure you that you will have a great time here in our wonderful city.

 

First lets start off with Night Whispers a the Oshkosh Public Museum . You will find out if the ghost stories of Oshkosh are truly for real, as claimed in the newspapers and personal encounter or just things that may have been exaggerated through time. Take a night time walking tour through the  museum with real stories of ghosts reported that haunt Oshkosh. Guided tours are offered at 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from October 26-30, 2015. Pre-registration is required and space is limited to only 15 people per tour, guaranteeing everyone has an up-close and personal encounter. A cash bar serving soda, beer and wine will also be available. Tours not suitable for children under 10.

Spirits of the Grand Tour has always been my favorite. It is only three nights from October 29-31. Tours are at 8:00, 9:00 and 10:00 PM for 45 minutes and are limited to the first 24 people. Tickets are $15.00 and sell out fast! There are over 130 years of history to experience. Led by the interactive tour guides of Hysterical Productions, you’ll travel from lobby to auditorium to balcony to basement to dressing rooms, each with its own story. Thankfully, the tour ends in the Grand Lounge where you can enjoy a beverage and exchange stories!

Free Fridays are always at the Time Community Theater and Friday, October 30th will be no different at they will be showing the 1978 Halloween movie. Show starts at 7:00
The last outdoor farmers market of the season will also be on Saturday, October 31st. starting at 8:00 AM. with plenty of in season vegetables, honey, syrups, cheeses, pasture raised meats, poultry, jams and flowers.  There is still a wide variety of handcrafted items and live music starting at 9:00. until noon. Don’t fret though, they will pick up with the Winter market the following Saturday from 9:30-12:30 in the  multi purpose room at Merrill Middle School.
