|Stories by Fireside Program Offers Thrills for Two Age Groups|
Everyone loves a spooky story. A program being offered at the Johnson County Park and Recreation District's Ernie Miller Park in Olathe will carry on this tradition with age-appropriate stories for two age groups at different times.
The program is called Stories by Fireside and will take place on Saturday, Oct. 27 at the amphitheater at Ernie Miller Park, which is located at 909 N. Kansas-7 Highway, Olathe. From 6 to 7 p.m., Not-So-Scary stories will be presented for ages nine and under. From 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., Scarier Stories will be presented for ages 10 and older. In case of inclement weather, the program will be moved indoors to the Ernie Miller Natures Center's Bluestem Room, which has an indoor fireplace.
For both sessions, children must by accompanied by an adult parents or guardian. Park naturalists will spark participants' imaginations with tales told by the fireside. Search for the keyword "storytelling" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
The cost is $3 per person per session, including adults, paid on-site, but because space is limited, reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, contact the Nature Center at (913) 764-7759.
