“Fright takes flight” is the way the American Airpower Museum is describing its Halloween party to be held Oct. 27 in a “haunted hangar” complete with aircraft in the Halloween spirit.
Charles Lindbergh flew the Spirit of St. Louis from Long Island to Paris in the first solo, non-stop transatlantic flight in 1927. But a very different spirit will be on display at the American Airpower Museum’s upcoming holiday party.
The aviation museum is holding its “Haunted Hangar Halloween Party” Sun. Oct. 27, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., providing a chance for Trick or Treaters to enjoy the holiday with a twist.
“Costumed museum staff will hand out treats as children go door to door in the safety of Hangar 3,” according to the museum.
“Mingle with ghosts, goblins, ghouls, skeletons, vampires, witches and zombies inside our spooky home, decorated and creatively transformed into a horror house nightmare with dry ice fog, spider webs, flying bats and new frights at every turn,”
The Haunted Hangar Halloween Party also includes a scavenger hunt and a tour of the Haunted Bomber, crafts, games with prizes and face painting.
Children ages 12 and under will compete in a costume contest with adults also encouraged to dress up in “appropriate garb.”
Prizes will be awarded for the best original and most creative costumes, courtesy of Cockpit USA with no age limits.
The American Airpower Museum’s Haunted Hangar Halloween Party is free for museum members with valid membership cards.
For the public, a regular museum admission fee is requested of $13 for adults, $10 for seniors, $8 for children ages 5 to 12 and free admission for children under 5 and active military.
