If it’s big, scaly or hairy – it’s definitely scary!
Halloween focuses not only on ground-bound frights, but also ones that take to the sky, like witches on brooms, and ghosts that fly. So while the Helicopter museum is a mile or so across our borders, this year it shares our love of all things that go bump in the night.
So look up (if you dare!) at the All Hallows Eve night of Ghosts, Ghouls, & Goblins at the American Helicopter Museum. For the first time ever, visitors to the Museum will see helicopters piloted by skeletons and overtaken by spiders…and a dinosaur is has also found its way inside! Volunteers in costumes will man treat stations for trick-or-treaters and one helicopter will even offer a slightly spooky walk-through experience.
This family night caldron-of-fun bubbles over with Halloween stories and movies, ghostly music and an entertaining craft activity for kids. Adults can enjoy of few ‘spirits’ of their own, supplied by Locust Lane Brewery and Chaddsford Winery. An additional cost, proof of age is required.
See more than 35 civilian and military helicopters, autogiros and convertiplanes in what is considered the nation’s premier aviation museum devoted exclusively to helicopters. The event ‘lifts off’ at 6pm and gives guests the chance to see the Museum in a whole new way. Admission is $10 for children and students under age 18. Admission is free for accompanying adults. Purchase tickets at the door or online at www.americanhelicopter.museum.
