Children ages 8 to 12 are invited to find out what goes bump in the night in some of Wilton’s oldest, creakiest buildings. Ghost Night is Saturday, Oct. 15, from 6:30 to 8, at the Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury Road.
During a candlelight walk through the dimly lit period rooms, and up and down groaning stairs of the 1740 Betts House and the 1772 Fitch House, children will hear stories of the families who lived there. They will wend their way to the Burt Barn, where deep in the darkest chamber they will hear classic scary Halloween stories told in the dark. The evening will conclude with games, cider and donuts. Halloween costumes are optional.
New this year — parents may drop their kids off, but they are invited to linger and enjoy a glass of hard cider while waiting.
Co-sponsored by the Kiwanis Club, registration is required. The cost for members is $15 per child, $25 per family; for non-members, $25 per child, $35 per family.
