|Haunted Kansas program returns to Ernie Miller Park on Oct. 21|
As darkness falls, walk through the trails of Ernie Miller Park and listen to the stories of long ago during a special event being offered in late October by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
Now in its ninth year, the program is called Haunted Kansas and is for ages eight and older, and all children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Characters from the past will share legends around the campfire. Expect a shiver down the spine and a mild case of goose bumps for those who dare enter the forest on this autumn evening. Group sessions begin every 15 minutes and the program lasts about an hour and a half. This is an outdoor event, so be sure to dress appropriately.
To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under youth and then under special events. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “Halloween.”
