HCOMING IN OCTOBER
The 14th Annual Concrete Ghost Walk
Every Saturday night in October
Starting at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
You’re invited to join us for a unique experience that’s historical, hysterical and thought-provoking! Are these characters really haunting our businesses and buildings? What axe (eeek!) do they have to grind? Is there more to their story than we know from reading about them in the history books and newspapers? Is it safe to walk the streets of Concrete alone? Who is down that dark alley?
Learn about the characters, events and legends that have shaped our community, and you’ll hear from local residents (living and otherwise) as you enjoy a tour along the haunts of our parks, alleys and buildings. Get Tickets!
A Murder Mystery Evening
Thursday, October 24
6:00 p.m. – light dinner, limited seating
7:00 p.m. – presentation
It’s an evening of murder and mayhem! You’ll hear true stories of crimes in Skagit and Whatcom Counties during the early twentieth century. Everything from public hangings, husbands killing wives, wives killing husbands, and strangers coming to town. Filled with intrigue and rich, true history, this is a glimpse into the darker side of humanity, all from the safety of your theatre seat. Presented by Todd Warger, from the Whatcom Museum. Todd is an Emmy Award-winning nominee for the documentary film “The Mountain Runners,” and a recipient of the Washington State Historical Society’s David Douglas. Get Tickets!
The annual Trunk-or-Treat in Bear Square
Thursday, October 31
4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Kids in costumes are invited to join us in Bear Square (in Town Center), where community volunteers will have the trunks of their cars stuffed with treats. It’s a fun way to celebrate Halloween in a safe environment. Young children must be accompanied by an adult; no pets, please. Take lots of photos and post them to our Facebook page! Tickets not required.
