Barber County Heritage Center

Greetings to all you Spooky Specters, Spirits and Goblins!
Once again, it's time for those spooky, ookey, kookey and weirdly wonderful folks at The Barber County Heritage Center at to bring a little pain and misery to the area, along with a coffin full of giggles.
Last year, Mother Nature thought it would be really nice to dump a lot of rain on us, right before Halloween, forcing us to cancel our Annual Haunted Hayrack ride. But, "Never Fear", we said...."We'll be back bigger and better in 2019", we said...
Uh huh....By late Spring 2019, water still stood on the ride trail, leading us to once again cancel the event...but with a twisted devious little backup plan......
We've decided to put on a little Halloween show....a 45 minute foray into the world of the supernatural...a spooky little comedy called "Frankenstein Slept Here", featuring the Heritage Center Players!
But wait....there's more...much more...
Before the show, we'll have some fun games with prizes for the kids, and a costume contest with cash prizes each night. There will also be Face Painting for $1, and a "Wheel of Misfortune" for $.25/spin with prizes.
So mark your calendars, and day planners...set your watches, clocks and hourglasses for October 25th and 26th 2019 for a casket splitting, tombstone tipping, bone chilling good time!
Doors open and the games begin at 6:30 p.m. ...Then, at 8:00, The Storyteller will "Kick Off" the festivities with a frightening tale of woe and misery, followed immediately by the main show, "Frankenstein Slept Here". Please be sure and bring your own treat bag to carry your prizes!
As always, Glow necklaces and Glow sticks will be sold at the door for $1 each
Admission is $6 for adults, $4 for children 6-18 and Kids 5 and under get in for free.
Categories for the best costume are: Ages 0-8, Ages 9-18 and Best Family costume, with a prize of $15 for each of the 3 divisions.
The costume contest winners will be announced and prizes awarded immediately following the performance.
So come see us at 1056 SE Isabel Road (corner of Hwy. 160 & Isabel Road) in Medicine Lodge!!
