Bash

October 24, 2013

Have a 'BASH this weekend!

As Halloween approaches, haunts and haunters in the Wabash Valley are offering up some frights and some family friendly fun.

One of the most elaborate yard haunts in Terre Haute, Castle Lorey, will open from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday and Oct. 31 for trick-or-treaters. The haunt is a block and a half south of Hulman Street at 1815 S. 29th St.

The castle is a home haunt hosted by Marc and Dawn Lorey. This year, guests may bring a non-perishable human food item or pet food for a donation to the Terre Haute Catholic Charities Food Bank.

Not all children dare to walk the path through the Castle, but there is always a treat at the end for those in costume. The haunt is geared toward ages 16 and under, but parents are welcome to try their luck as well.

The Loreys add new items every year, but offer up old favorites like the electric chair, too. Look for more animatronics and things that go splat in the night. Get past the graveyard out front before walking toward the castle. The Zombie Wasteland is next. Before getting your just reward (candy) you’ll need to reach the pumpkin patch.

Additional Halloween haunts and family friendly events follow.

Trick-or-treat at the library

Vigo County children are encouraged to trick-or-treat at the Vigo County Public Library from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 31 for a free book and family fun.

The Halloween Book Giveaway and Spooktacular Event will be in the library lobby and lower level meeting rooms. Participants will decorate their own monster face cupcake. Those who stick around for a spell also will be treated to a Halloween storytime as well as activities, games and prizes.

Healthy Halloween Hoedown

Children and the young-at-heart are invited to dust off their favorite costumes and mosey on down to the Terre Haute Children’s Museum from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday for the Healthy Halloween Hoedown.

During this Halloween roundup, sponsored by Terre Haute Regional Hospital, kids and adults can enjoy music, healthy snacks, dancing, crafts, games, experiments and live animals. Children will even get to hop on the saddle of a blender bike to mix up smoothies.

This event isn’t just for cowboys and cowgirls. Superheroes, princesses, pirates, witches, goblins, wizards and more are all welcome at this un-scary event. There will be a variety of activities available for all ages.

Tickets for the “Healthy Halloween Hoedown” are $5 for members of the Terre Haute Children’s Museum and $10 for children ages 2 and older and adults. Children under age 2 will be admitted for free.

The museum is at 727 Wabash Ave. and Eighth Street. For more information, visit www.thchildrens
