Halloween hauntings this weekend
All manner of scary and not so scary things happen at Wilton Library this weekend beginning with The Haunted Library, on Friday, Oct. 26, from 7 to 9 p.m. Children ages 6 to 10 are invited to stop by anytime during the two hours to roam among the dark, haunted stacks. Scary beasts and ghastly lost souls are known to pop out from time to time. Ghoulish snacks will be served and ghostly games will be played. The fee at the door is $5 per child. The program is sponsored by the Coyle Family Young Readers Fund. On Saturday, kids of all ages can create their own Halloween crafts and take them home in the Drop-in Halloween Crafts program from 10 to 5 in the children’s library. Also on Saturday, spectators are reminded to join in the fun of watching zombies dance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in the Thrill the World simultaneous dance event happening at 2 p.m. sharp. Costumed dancers will re-create a six-minute “Thriller” dance to be part of breaking a world-wide record. A reception with healthy snacks follows the dance. The program is sponsored by the library and the Wilton Family Y.
