This Saturday night, little ghosts, goblins, witches and super heroes will be able to get a head start on their Halloween celebrations.

The Western Development Museum (WDM) will be hosting the 21st annual Great Pumpkin Masquerade and Family Dance on Saturday night from 5 to 9 p.m.

“It’s a really fun family event,” Cheryl Stewart-Rahm, WDM Program Coordinator said. “We have a fun-filled evening planned for the whole family.”

Stewart-Rahm said the evening will feature a haunted house, along with games and crafts. This year also features the pumpkin gallery, a popular carving contest from seasons past. Children can bring a carved pumpkin gallery and the public will judge them. Winners will be awarded museum bucks as prizes.

Prizes will also be given for the best costumes.

“We have had some terrific costumes over the years," Steward-Rahm said. “It’s great to see how creative people get and they seem to have so much fun as a family coming up with the costumes.”

Prizes for the best costumes will be handed out at 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. The Great Pumpkin Masquerade and Family Dance will be open to youngsters five to 11 with regular museum admission.
