For a unique Halloween experience, the Aldrich has arranged for kids to have their photo taken from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 31. Kids in costume can choose to have their photo shot in one of two artist designed photo booths. A special thrill is to have the photo projected on the Museum’s facade! This event is free and open to the public. The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is located on 258 Main Street in Ridgefield. For more information call 203-438-4519 or visit www.aldrichart.org.
On October 31, beginning at 4:30 pm, the annual Halloween Costume Party for Children will go on at the New England Carousel Museum on 95 Riverside Ave. in Bristol, with the costume contest scheduled for 5 p.m. Ghoulish games and fun are promised, along with a crazy costume contest and what is billed as “frightening foods.” Kids are free, but adults are asked to contribute $1. www.thecarouselmuseum.org.
Finally, anyone who is in the area on Halloween night is invited to join the Safe Halloween fun at the Terryville Fairgrounds in Terryville from 4pm to 7pm. Sponsored by the Terryville Lion’s Club, it will feature hayrides, games, food and treats. All you need to participate is a non-perishable food item for the Plymouth Food Pantry.
