SOLD OUT – Flashlight History Hike

Tuesday, October 19
7pm

The Museums at Cantigny Park are wishing our members an early Happy Halloween on October 19 with a special edition Flashlight History Hike! Diverging from the usual path, follow your guides through the park and listen to scary stories, explore a witches garden, and maybe spot some nocturnal friends. This spooktacular one-mile stroll through the park will last about an hour, starting at 7 pm. Dress up in your best costume and join the fun! Refreshments will be served to give you energy for this evening stroll. In case of rain, this event will be held the following Tuesday, October 26.


Neverly Brothers

The band’s vintage wardrobe changes and knack for storytelling combined with pure musical talent are sure to make this a festive night to remember!
