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 and Recreation District.
Now in its tenth 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 special events and then under youth. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “Halloween.”
Haunted Kansas sessions will begin from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20 in Ernie Miller Park, 909 N. Kansas-7 Highway. The cost per person, including adults, is $5 for Johnson County residents or $6 per person for nonresidents, in advance, or $8 per person on the day of the event, if space is available.
