The West Baton Rouge Museum and the West Baton Rouge Parish Library will celebrate a “Merry Not Scary-Socially Distant- Halloween.”  

The festivities, which are FREE and open to the public, will be held on Friday, October 23, 2020, from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., on the grounds of the West Baton Rouge Museum.

Prepare yourselves for several tricks and lots of treats. The night’s festivities from 6:30 – 7 p.m. will include a fortune teller, take-home crafts, and several hands-off activities all across the museum’s six-acre campus. Come in your best Halloween digs to take part in our costume contest. Categories will include best costume and most innovative incorporation of a mask. Winners will be announced before the evening’s grand finale.
The night’s grand finale will be a showing of the Disney Channel Original Movie Halloweentown on the WBRM Lawn beginning at 7:00 p.m. Bring your beach towels, blankets, and lawn chairs. Spots will be marked to maintain a safe distance between families.

The West Baton Rouge Museum is located at 845 N. Jefferson Avenue in Port Allen. In the event of rain, activities will be moved to the West Baton Rouge Community Center and Pavilion.
