Rags To Witches

Sunday, October 22, 3 to 6PM

Don’t miss Ragdale’s costumed, creative spookfest for the whole family. Guests and little monsters will be spellbound by live performances, hands-on art projects, games and seasonal tastings throughout Lake Forest’s most imaginative haunted estate. Special features include:

• A spellbinding scavenger hunt through the pet cemetery and bewitched Ragdale House
• Spooktacular arts, crafts, and performances
• An original play* in the Witches’ Ring
• Ghost story writing and telling
• Haunted hayrides
• Costume contest with prizes
• Creepy, live-drawn family portraits to take home
• Cider, snacks, and sweet shoppe for the kids plus a cash bar for the adults

The event is inspired by the supernatural work of Ragdale artists and features an original performance with the ghosts of Ragdale’s founding family, the Shaws, and their curious pets. Costumes encouraged and prizes awarded.

*Strange Tails: Curiosity Killed the Cat, a play by Kenneth Gerleve and Todd Summar. Directed by William S. Rogers.
