HIGH POINT, N.C. -- It's the season of scares and spooks and you'll find plenty of them at the High Point Museum.

The Museum along with the High Point Historical Society will host the 6th annual Ghost Stories in the Park this Saturday, October 14, 2017.

Teresa Loflin works with the Museum. She says the evening event is both frightening and family-friendly.

"There will be squash painting and decorating available for a small fee. Enjoy corn hole, sidewalk chalk, and a Halloween photo booth," said Loflin.

But the big draw are the ghost stories told by professional story tellers on the museums' historical grounds.

"The museum itself is not haunted, but we are having the stories told in our historic park that has the three historic buildings. So we'll be sharing stories in a very unique, eerie setting," said Loflin.

Cynthia Moore Brown, who specializes in North Carolina history mysteries will share local ghost stories and folk tales. A native of North Carolina, Brown specializes has written several books including Folktales & Ghost Stories of NC Piedmont and Folklore and Food.

Bring chairs and blankets to sit and listen to the family friendly, frightening and amusing ghost stories. Snacks including s'mores and popcorn will be for sale. Paul's Magic will be doing face painting from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Admission is free and costumes are welcome.

You can enjoy Ghost Stories in the Park from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the High Point Museum's Historical Park. For more information, click here.
