Ghost Stories, S'mores And Bonfire - 18:30 to 21:00

As a bonus to Friday evenings "Ghost Stories" we will be screening a movie that was partially filmed in the McKaig park last year on a 120" screen out in the woods.
This feature short "Kaishakunin" is a samurai ghost story exploring honor, betrayal, the nature of truth, and the power of legend. 
Watch the trailer and note the outdoor scenes (starting at 12 seconds) were filmed in our park.

Storytellers will enchant kids and adults with spooky seasonal tales weaving in local history. These stories will increasing become more spooky as the evening progresses.
Roast marshmallows to golden gooey perfection and place between the chocolate and graham crackers all while listening to the storyteller by the stream in the woods.
Plan to bring a flashlight and a beach chair. Note that there are no restrooms in the woods.
