The fun and frights of harvest time begin soon with the annual Ghost Walk and Mystery Dinner at the Jennings County Historical Society Museum in Vernon.
“There is just so much rich folklore in Jennings County and the Ghost Walk gives us a chance to bring some of the scariest ones to life,” Wanda Wright said of the annual fundraising event to benefit the historical society.
The Ghost Walk is at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Oct. 11-12. Beginning at the museum, drama club members from the Jennings County middle and high schools will perform selected folk legends at different sites in downtown Vernon.
“We do different stories each except we always do the legend of Bloody Mary. That’s the scariest, and everyone loves it,” said Wright.
No reservations are required for the Ghost Walk, but there is a fee to participate in the guided walks.
Mystery dinners are Oct. 11-12 in the upstairs section of the museum.
“The dinners are not the kind where you solve mysteries while you eat,” Wright said. “We call it a Mystery Dinner because every year the themes and the menus at the dinners are kept secret. No one knows what they are going to eat until they get there.”
The dinners usually are sold out, but there are still some tickets left.
