Second Saturday: Family Day - Halloween

We’re always excited for October - there are so many great stories to share!  From fun fiction like our hilarious live adaptation of Washington Irving’s Legend of Sleepy Hollow, to the real life scare of the Salem Witch Trials, Halloween never fails to capture our imagination.

Fun activities for the day include

  • Professional Makeup and FX artist Izzie Frost demo station
  • The Table of Fears: How well do you know your phobias? 
  • Halloween print-making. Get inspired by our display of Student Art from DeSales and Manual High Schools and then create some a Print-block-style art of your own
  • Candy Challenge – can you sort the Halloween treats in order by the date they first appeared.  You might be surprised – and learn something too.
  • The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - 1:00pm – our teaching artists have created an fun, hilarious, family-friendly, and accurate version to The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. 
  • Our friends from the Louisville Zoo will be here from 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. with creepy creatures to thrill, delight, and educate!

It's an event that's not to be missed!

While you're here, take some time to enjoy our quarterly Grandparents Lounge. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some quiet time and refreshments!

Our Second Saturday Family Days are brought to you by our friends at Republic Bank.
