Bettendorf — Come in costume and celebrate the fall season! On Sunday, October 27, from noon – 5:00 PM the Family Museum’s annual event, Scarecrow Shenanigans, returns this year with even more kooky, spooky, and ooky activities. Almost every gallery and room in the Museum will be filled with art activities, games, and science projects.

In the Museum’s Great Hall, visitors will construct haunted houses, get their faces painted, play Halloween games, and grab a quick snack. The Family Museum Gallery will get a spooky make-over that is not for the faint of heart – parents must give the OK for kids to enter. In our dance studios, guests can watch the Family Museum Dance Company perform, decorate a mini pumpkin, and take a turn on the “Skary-Oke” stage. Visitors are also invited upstairs to make slime out of common household items, make a skeleton craft, and dissect real eyeballs. And new this year: there will be a child-size train offering rides for children and adults in our parking lot.

Tickets are $3.00 for Family Museum members and $8.00 each for the general public. Tickets are available now. Everyone must have a ticket to enter – even Family Museum members. For more information please call (563) 344-4106, or visit Scarecrow Shenanigans is sponsored by The Family Credit Union.
