The Oklahoma Territorial Museum will host a free Family Friendly Halloween Carnival called “History Never Dies” on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 5-7 p.m. at the museum, 406 E. Oklahoma Ave. Guthrie.
The evening will include several activities as well as free hot dogs, candy, and treats. There will also be various games and activities. The event is open to “kids of all ages” and everyone looking for a great evening is welcome to attend.
The theme is Museum Mayhem and guests are encouraged to wear their costumes. All museum staff will be dressing up as their favorite movie character to join in the fun.
In addition to the family fun activities the museum will incorporate history in several of the evening’s events.
“We will have a scavenger hunt with games that represent history,” said Nathan Turner, regional director for museums and historical sites for the Oklahoma Historical Society. “A staff member will also be reading Halloween books and telling stories.”
Turner also stated how exciting it is that the carnival brings new people into the museum and exposes them to aspects of Guthrie and the state of Oklahoma’s history.
“We love for the community to come and see our museum, and for them to have a great time,” Turner said. “This event brings in so many people to the museum, and we are able to share what we do with them.”
Turner also stated how thankful the museum staff is for the Guthrie community and those who sponsor the carnival through generous donations of candy, hot dogs, and other items.
“We always accept community donations for the event,” Turner said. “We’re so thankful to the local community sponsors who always help us make this event a success each year by generously giving donations.”
